Made from impact resistant W2 tool steel, these cleavers are big, serious, and are meant to handle a lifetime of use and abuse. Cleanly chop the leg off of a deer in one smooth swing or cleave a hog in two, using both hands. The secret to making this steel preform to its fullest potential is a professional heat treat, using cryogenics and a differential quench, bringing out a beautiful hamon, which shows the hard edge juxtaposed to a mild, impact resistant spine.
I can use about any variety of stabilized wood or antler to make the custom handle you want for your kitchen, and leather covers are available upon request.

Cleaver is beautiful. Delivered on time and on spec. I'm not a master metalworker so can't judge from a position of technical expertise, but cleaver is clearly heirloom quality and better than anything you could buy in a store.
