Astounding Cleaver

Highly powerful yet extraordinarily light, our modern Chinese cleaver is the perfect combination of strength and precision. Tasked with creating a Chinese cleaver that could be used as a master knife, we created a knife that’s as comfortable cutting through big chunks of meat as it is with more delicate tasks. The bottom inch of the three-inch deep blade is almost parallel and under 1mm thick, so that you get all the power with none of the heft. Simply change your grip to slice through bone, chop, dice or perform more delicate tasks. This 21st century remake is nifty and multitalented - a daring alternative to the Western chef’s knife.

Details

Precision engineered from the highest quality high-tech 14c28n Sandvik Swedish steel and sharpened by hand and eye for the ultimate cutting edge. As with every Savernake Knife, the Astounding Cleaver features our trademark concave hollow grind, expertly blended into a tapering convex cutting edge. This means it is both incredibly light, and easy to hone. It also allows for smoother cutting and slicing due to reduced metal passing through the ingredient, and less sticking, due to the reduced surface contact. Quite simply, the concave hollow grind is the business. Dimensions: 175mm blade // 305mm overall // ±160 grams
