Thread: FS: Ashi Hamono Cleaver

    FS: Ashi Hamono Cleaver

    The cleaver is made to my specification by Ashi Hamono as I ordered it trough Blueway Japan.
    White#2 ,
    210mmx110mm (above heel)/105mm (above toe)
    2.2mm spine above heel
    1.1mm spine above toe
    400g weight, no flex in the blade.
    I wanted the cleaver to be a bit lighter than the standard #6 for ease of use, but still not be so light it will not work as cleavers are supposed to.
    Still has the protective coating on most of the blade, where the coating came off you can see patina formed.
    The grind is very good, and the steel is heat treated excellently. Takes great edge, and holds it well.
    This is a veggie slicer, it can be used for meats, but obviously will not cut bones.
    The cleaver has seen little use, I never got around to make a solid knife block to accommodate a cleaver.
    The kanji is engraved not stamped.

    PRICE= $230 shipped in US. International buyers pay actual postage fees.

    I wish I had the dough. Very tempting

    Good steel, great heat treat, outstanding fit and finish, and made to order. Approx $300 for a high end Non-custom Chinese cleaver is to be expected.
