Description: This cleaver was made by Black Dragon Forge, led by South African knifemaker Neels van den Berg. Neels is a full-time bladesmith and knifemaker with a passion for learning and teaching. After taking a knifemaking course in 2007, van den Berg knew he had stumbled upon his passion. Neels forges his own steel and strives to make practical, high-quality, no-nonsense knives and tools. He expects his knives to be used and used hard.
This compact cleaver packs a punch! A cleaver shape brings the weight of the knife to the front making it perfect for chopping tasks. It is designed to be a daily carry fixed blade. The 3.4" blade is long enough to get most any task done without being cumbersome on the belt or in the pocket. The tip is still plenty sharp to do tasks such as opening boxes, or piercing heavy duty plastic.
The blade is made from Bohler N690 stainless steel and features textured flats and satin finished grinds. Jimping on th spine provides an excellent thumb purchase. A hole in the front reduces weight and allows the knife to be hung like a traditional cleaver.
The handle is made from burlap Micarta secured to a full tang for strength and durability. The large choil accomadates many grip styles adding versatility. A lanyard can be added to the back of the knife if desired.
To keep the knife close at hand, an OD green kydex sheath is included.
