This cleaver is hand forged from high carbon 9260 spring steel. After precise and careful hardening, tempering and annealing, the edge reaches Rockwell 60-62 (HRC). Final sharpening is done on a felt disc using chrome oxide compound to give the tool a razor sharp edge. A traditional mixture of beeswax, linseed oil and pine turpentine is used on the steel to provide an anti-rust finish.

 

The handle for this knife is hand shaped out of a block of Malaysian hardwood - Merbau. Mosaic pins are made of stainless steel, brass, copper and nickel. Afterwards the handle is dyed, oiled with Tung oil and waxed with a beeswax.
