Our Rustic Hand-Forged Serbian Cleaver has excellently made it to our knife of the month. We love the rustic look of this knife, and it's definitely one that will turn heads in your kitchen. Beyond its good looks, this knife is incredibly functional.
Aptly named after its origin, the Serbian cleaver is a workhorse in the kitchen. It's great for chopping vegetables, mincing garlic, slicing through thick meat, and cutting through delicate bones. We recommend this knife to anyone looking for a versatile knife that can do it all.
What Is the Knife Made Of?
The Serbian cleaver is made from high carbon steel, implying it will take on a patina over time. But we can easily clean the patina to restore its shiny look. It also has a significantly thicker blade, giving it more heft and ideal for tougher tasks.
A beautiful wood handle completes the ambiance of the knife. It's important to note that the handle on this knife is not attached with screws or rivets. Serbian cleaver is a full-tang knife, meaning the blade and handle are one solid piece of metal. This makes for a much sturdier knife overall.
Care for the Knife
As with all high carbon steel knives, it's imperative to hand-wash and dry this knife after each use. Leaving the knife wet will cause it to rust, so we use a hand towel or dishcloth to dry it completely.
Acid-rich foods will also cause patina to form on the blade more quickly. It's not a bad thing – in fact, some people prefer the look of a well-used knife.
Our Rustic Hand Forged Serbian Cleaver is an excellent knife for those looking for a tough, hard, and flexible knife. It is a beautiful addition to any kitchen. With proper care, this knife will last a lifetime. Get yours now!
