Product Description

The cleaver is a large knife that is used for cutting beef, lamb, pork, fish, poultry, and bones. Meant to be swung like a hammer, the tough edge of the blade can withstand repeated blows directly into thick meat and dense cartilage. The broad side of the blade can be used to crush foods like garlic and ginger. Pick up a cleaver so can chop meat and veggies without running the risk of breaking favourite kitchen knives. Weve heard of people cutting through their cutting boards, so make sure have the right cutting board for heavy-duty cleaver. Wooden handle knives are the most popular handle material in the world. The Traditional line of cutlery has stood the test of time and is the choice of many who appreciate the feel of a wood handle. The Dexter Traditional product line features a proprietary DEXSTEEL stain-free, high-carbon steel blade that is precision ground for durability. Including an individually ground and honed edge for just the right flexibility and durability. Unique edge geometry ensures a long lasting blade edge, and easily restored performance every time its sharpened. The handles are durable and require minimal maintenance if cared for properly, these knives will last a lifetime. There is something to be said for great American made knives that have been used since the early 1800s. Made in the USA.
