Hitachi Blue #1 core and soft iron cladding. One of the best Japanese cutlery steels forged by Yoshikazu Tanaka of Sakai City. Undoubtedly one of the most revered blacksmiths, Tanaka-san's mastery of heat treating steel is loved by many users around the globe. 

This large cleaver has been ground to a thin convex grind by the renowned Kawakita Hamono. The edge profile features a very gentle curvature to allow for smooth dicing, chopping and slicing. 

We were very lucky to be able to obtain the first full sized cleavers made with Blue #1 steel in Sakai. 

This cleaver is designed for vegetable and boneless protein preparation, the geometry is far too thin to be used as a butcher's cleaver.

A Beast!

It's big and it's not light but it's got a great balanced grind that gives it great cutting ability while having good separation. Steel is hard, takes and hold a keen and mean edge. Overall well finished and hand feel is superb.

An absolute beast

As the title says this knife is truly a beast. First off it came impeccably shipped with the sharpest out of the box edge I have ever experience on a kitchen knife, ready to cut through everything in its path. The knife weighs in at an impressive 550 grams and when coupled with the very nicely thin covex grind it cuts through everything with barely any if no resistance at all. It is truly a joy to use as I’m sure anyone who has one would agree.
