Gesshin 205mm Meat Cleaver

  • With a robust build and a tough and durable stainless steel, the Gesshin 205mm Meat Cleaver is a great tool for your butchering jobs. It is double-beveled, though highly asymmetrical and thinner behind the edge than something like a Dexter. With this unique construction, it manages to achieve a level of finesse that traditional double-bevel cleavers do not attain. It passes through meat without pressing or marring the muscle fibers like most cleavers tend to do.

    The handle is made from pakka wood. It is a very stable and moisture resistant material. The fit-and-finish is excellent and is very comfortable in hand. The cleaver is also very forward balanced, so chopping actions are more natural. The blade also features a perforation by the spine, close to the front. This functions as a way to hang the cleaver, so it does not take too much space at your station.
