The Phantom Series 8” ‘The Crixus’ Chef - Cleaver Knife Hybrid is a uniquely designed chef knife that combines the versatility of a chef knife, with the weight and width of a cleaver knife. A must have for all meat-lovers and BBQ enthusiasts. Named after the infamous Gladiator “Crixus”, this beloved tool honors its namesake by making quick work of any challenge. The curved profile allows for clean, perfect slices through flesh, skin and sinew, while the width and weighted front half let you chop like a cleaver for easy sectioning and portioning. The classic cleaver hole near the nose allows you to easily and conveniently hang your knife on a meat hook, or store in the included PerfectFit sheath, Poultry, beef, pork, wild game and even fruits and veggies easily fall prey to this blade, which is versatile enough to handle much more beyond proteins. You may find yourself never reaching for a conventional chef's knife again. Carefully designed to convey a look of stealthy motion, like a shadow racing through the dark, or a gust of wind blowing through the night, the Phantom Series of knives are elegant, agile and ruthless culinary instruments of exceptional performance.
