This cleaver does not mess around. The slight curve to the blade and the rock grip hollow near the bolster of the spine give you the option of a rock chop, while the extended straight edge provides a clean slice when used cleaver-style. The 9” Meat Cleaver from the Shadow Black series is one of the most wicked designs in the Dalstrong arsenal. This no-nonsense blade has the heft to cleave through meat and bone with ease, while the rigid teeth along the spine give the grip you need for more hands-on work and push cuts. Use the curve near the bolster to hook your prey and drag it closer. The Shadow Black Series features an exceptional grip, screamingly sharp cutting edge, and is engineered for optimal maneuverability. Designed from the ground up to be as sleek, aggressive and muscular looking as it is effective, the Shadow Black Series is sure to deliver the highest levels of satisfaction during your culinary journey. Striking from every angle, the unique handle geometry (inspired by the F-117 Nighthawk Stealth Fighter) features sharp, aerodynamic lines that cut the air and tuck snugly into your palm. A midnight black titanium coating creates unforgettable styling, sophistication and functionality, sure to turn heads in any kitchen. This is one evil looking knife.
When you unsheathe your blade and grasp the handle, you’ll feel the menacing urge to put the razor sharp edge immediately to work, slicing and dicing. The high-carbon steel at 58+ rockwell with an expert heat treatment ensures top-of-the-line performance, while the fiber-resin military grade G10 handle is nearly impervious to heat, cold and moisture. A black, non-reflective titanium-nitride coating adds corrosion resistance, toughens the blade, enhances non-stick properties and adds to the sinister appearance.
