The Gladiator Series R 'Obliterator' cleaver serves a single ferocious purpose - to obliterate any culinary obstacle in it’s path with one brutal chop. Forged from premium high-carbon 7cr17mov Steel and heat treated to 60HRC, this 9" steel behemoth weighs in at 2.9lbs and 6mm thick. With a menacing shape inspired by medieval weaponry, this heavy-weight titan is sure to power through anything placed before it with brutal efficiency. The blade's edge is razor sharp, allowing for surprising precision, while the extra-thick black pakka-wood handle provides a solid grip from which to wield. Capable of sailing through virtually anything it may face, from beef, poultry or pork to tough-skinned fruits and vegetables, cutting with this mega-beast will put a smile on your face. Included with the cleaver is a stylish handcrafted acacia wood stand, which serves the purpose to both store and display this savage instrument of chopping power, which is sure to garner attention where ever it is placed. Also included for those on the go is a PerfectFit saya with pin and string.
