This heavy, but small cleaver is forged from 1095 tool steel and has plenty of weight and finesse to carve up anything in your kitchen or beyond. The Iowa walnut handles are anchored with brass hardware. Ideal for those with smaller hands who want a knife with some weight, but not a ton of length. The rectangular blade is forged from .186 stock and is five inches long. A powerful chopper. Ready your cutting block for some serious pain.
