Description: This exceptional meat cleaver is made by Steam Mill Hollow Knife Works. SMHKW was starting in 1990 by Don Hanson III, his father (Don Hanson II), and Don's brother David. The Hansons live in Steam Mill Hollow Missouri, deep in the Ozarks. After a few years they each went back to doing their own stuff. Recently David and Kyle (Don's son) started working in Don's shop and they decided to revive the old brand. The collaborative effort is exceptional!
The blade of this cleaver is made from an old, large sawmill blade (8670 carbon steel) and is heat treated to 60 Hrc. The flats are forge finished. A differential heat treatment ensures a resilient, durable blade. Stabilized Missouri black walnut handle scales are set on a full tang for strength. The domed handle is completed with a lined lanyard hole.
This cleaver would feel at home in nearly any collection, but it truly begs to be used! Because this knife is made from carbon steel, we recommend using camellia oil to avoid oxidation.
