Pallares 9" Butcher Cleaver Carbon Boxwood
A 'leaf' style cleaver, popular in the Mediterranean, the blade is curved and sharpened all the way up, allowing for more pushing techniques. This is a heavy knife, and would be a great addition to a serious butchers arsenal.
Pallares is a third generation family run company in Solsona, Spain. Started in the early 20th century in what was then a center of knife-making, they are now the last of the traditional companies in Solsona still producing knives. They produce wonderful hand ground knives and tools for cooks, butchers, gardeners, and farmers.
**Extra care is required with carbon steel. No soaking or dishwashers! Dry well in between uses to avoid rust. Blade will develop a patina (discoloration) with normal use.
