Description: This exceptional chef's cleaver is the work of Argentinian knifemaker Pablo Untroib. Pablo lives in Buenos Aires. He specializes in knives for professional and amateur cooks as well as making outdoor knives.
Meat cleavers are ideal for chopping down large cuts of meat, bone and hearty vegetables. Having a meat cleaver for heavier tasks ensures your primary knife used in the kitchen always stays in tip top shape.
The blade is O2 carbon steel. At Hrc 60, it will have a keen, long lasting edge. An elegant forced patina provides limited rust resistance and helps you get comfortable working with carbon steels. Because this knife is made from carbon steel, we recommend camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation.
Guayacan ebony wood handle scales are set on the full tang for strength and durability. Guayacan ebony is the wood of the Guaiacum, a genus of shrubs and trees with several species indigenous to the tropical regions of Central and South America. Guayacan is the hardest and densest traded hardwood. It is so hard that it does not float in water. It is perhaps no surprise that it will easily hold up to the heavy demands of either a home or commercial kitchen. The domed handle is nicely contoured so that it fits most hands.
The knife is accompanied by a veg tanned leather sheath custom built and tooled by Pancho Elizalde.
This meat cleaver by Pablo Untroib is a perfect choice for both home and commercial chefs.
