Messermeister Meridian Elite - 6" Cleaver - E/3651-6
This heavy cleaver is forged from a single large blank of steel and is widely regarded as the finest forged cleaver on the market. Featuring the Elite edge, it's sharpness is enhanced by the cleaver's weight.
Steel: 41/16 Krupp (Germany) High Carbon, Molybdenum-Vanadium, Chromium, No Stain Tool Steel, X55 CrMoV15.
Handles: state-of-the-art, highly damage resistant material, "Polyoxymethaline".
These knives have the sharpest edges of all forged cutlery. An elaborate 3 step sharpening process is enhanced in it's final step by being carefully hand-polished.
The Meridian Elite is hardened to 56 Rockwell hardness C, making them hard enough to hold their edge for a long period of time, yet it is easy to restore their edge with a steel.
