We are very pleased to introduce the Fanatic Thin Cleaver! This is actually a combination of our original Fanatic cleaver (nice and thin) with our Artifex handle made with super sturdy and durable G-10 composite with a classic 2 rivet design.
The steel used on this cleaver is a mono construction using AEB-L which is an excellent stainless steel that will provide a hair popping edge. It will re sharpen quickly and hold up to a long prep session with ease. The blade is quite thin for a cleaver of this size and it features a very nice distal taper.
The Richmond Artifex cleaver eschews the normal heavy Western bolster in favor of a bolster-less design. The extremely tough handle made of black linen micarta is virtually indestructible. It has a very rounded and streamlined shape that, coupled to the bolster-less blade, gives an almost Wa feel to the knife. A perfect combination for a cleaver.
Please note we grind a tiny bit of the back corner (heel) of the knife so it doesn't stick into the board when chopping. It's not chipped, it's done on purpose.
Thickness at heel/spine: 1.97mm
Thickness at front/spine 1.05mm
Blade Height: 85mm
CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
