The Katane Cleaver is the big brother of the Sunobe Cleaver. With its rustic charm, a unique piece of beauty was created, fully handmade from start to finish. This knife is full of history and generations of experience from professional blacksmiths who created a new standard of craftsmanship.

The production process for this knife takes longer than that of an ordinary knife. It consists of quenching - hammer - tempering - clamping steel - hammer - quenching - tempering and other continuous cycle operations. For the quenching splash 780 degrees are needed, the tempering is done with 180-200 degrees. This operation guarantees the extraordinary hardness and sharpness of this knife. 

The blade of this knife is as rustic as unique and the handle features copper nails as well as full tang design, which makes the knife even more sturdy than it already is.
The edge of the blade is extremely sharp allowing you to cut through any ingredient seamlessly. All in all this knife is a perfect piece of handmade art, so make sure you clean and dry the knife immediately after usage to ensure it lasting for a lifetime!
