If you intend to use the Maltese cleaver for carving of meat, please select the hardened spring steel, which is very durable. Unfortunately, even at this material it cannot be completely ruled that the blade edge breaks out when it hits at a strong or hard bone.
This cleaver is made out of rolled carbon steel (not stainless).
Please see also our cleavers with blades of high quality materials.
Important note: This is a fully functional prop of historical design, which is produced in small quantities in traditional manner. A regulatory food safety certification would make the price unaffordable. For that reason, we are committed to the following legal notice: This is a decoration item, neither certified nor suitable for contact with food!
In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
