The Dalstrong Gladiator Series 9″ heavy-duty ‘Ravenger ‘cleaver is designed for serious chopping. This cleaver is capable of cutting everything from pork bones to salmon heads and even pounds of chicken. This meat cleaver weighs in at 1.3 pounds and is ideal for all kinds of tasks. This 8-inch, high-carbon German Steel blade is extremely sharp. It can be used for chopping, but also mincing and dicing. It has a Rockwell rating of 55 which means that it is not as difficult as other blades. You can also get a lifetime warranty, a 100% satisfaction guarantee, or your money back.
The handle is made of black pakkawood. The handle is triple riveted. It feels solid in the hand. The handle of “The Ravenger”, unlike the Gladiator knives, is thicker than those of other Dalstrong knives. This allows you to hold the knife, which is quite heavy. It is also laminated and polished, which keeps it clean.
For exceptional sharpness, these knives can be hand-sharpened at 14-16 degrees on each side. Some users reported that their knife was dull and had to be sharpened by themselves. The stainless steel end caps add a degree of distinction and counterbalance to the knife.
