Damascus Steel is the material used to make this multi-purpose meat cleaver. The handle is made from polished rosewood. One piece of die-casting molding is found underneath the rosewood.
This 7-inch blade is very sharp and makes it an excellent choice for cutting meats and vegetables. This blade is not sharp enough to cut through bone. You could damage the knife if it isn’t strong enough to slice through bone.
The HRC (Hardness Rockwell C), of this meat cleaver is 58-60. This makes it very hard. This blade is extremely durable and does not need to be sharpened due to its high quality steel. The steel is VG-10, which is a special designation that refers to a particular type of stainless steel. The “gold standard” is the G in “VG”. This is the measurement that this steel has achieved. This steel is made in Japan and is very high quality. Professional chefs use VG10 as their most preferred steel for kitchen knives. It is known for its strength and resistance to corrosion. Although VG10 knives will cost more than lower quality steels, the benefits that you get from them are well worth it.
