170x63mm veggie cleaver in 01 carbon tool steel with forced patina from Blok Knives in the UK. Stabilized green and black hybrid handle with mosaic pin. This blade surprised me by how much I enjoyed the feel of it on the board. This is a rocker’s dream. The profile is super smooth for tasks like chiffonade or mincing herbs.
*Previously owned, used only once to test cut carrots. There is a light patch of cosmetic level corrosion on one side of the blade. I believe this came as part of the original forced patina, but not sure. Purely cosmetic, won’t effect use, but to clean it would require stripping the patina so I decided against it.
