Einar Posted December 23, 2019 Share Posted December 23, 2019 Just finished this cleaver in time for christmas. Its a present for my parents since they keep chipping the edge of the thin ikea cleaver they have. This one is made from 8 mm spring steel, so it should take some abuse I think. The blade is 12 inches long and 4 inches wide. Flat ground down to about 4 mm thick before the convex edge grind. HRC 55-56. Not sure what the wood I used for the handle is. Got a mystery block of wood given to my dad from another knifemaker. Hard and dense as all hell. I doubt it even floats. Had a brown and reddish tint to it, but I coloured it with ebony stain. The other is an 8 inch santoku I'm giving to my sister. Already made a thread about that one, but I included it for scale.Silver steel (115 CrV3) blade, 4 mm thick at the spine, full flat grind. Beech burl handle. HRC at about 61-62. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
