Description: Up and coming maker, Jordan Buckley has tremendous attention to detail. Jordan, who is 19 years old (as of the spring of 2023) is a Washington native. His passion for bladesmithing is clear throughout all his work. His work and aesthetic has tremendous refinement despite only having been making knives for 5 years. Perhaps it is no surprise that he aspires to become a mastersmith by 25!
This Mini Cleaver shows Jordan's significant skills at the forge. The blade is made from his own forged Cu-Mai combining a high performing 1084 carbon steel core with 15n20 carbon steel sides and a layer of copper in between. The combination of the dark etched core and the bright copper is extremely dramatic. Jordan's maker mark is on the left side of the blade.
The handle is butterscotch paper Micarta secured to the full tang using Micarta pins. The tang has been fileworked by hand and filled with black epoxy for an elegant appearance.
Whether used as an every day carry utility or as a cheese or mincing knife in the kitchen, this elegant mini-cleaver is spectacular and is sure to be a favorite!
Excellent work throughout!
