    Here's something new that I'm very happy with. I forged this cleaver from 1095 high carbon steel and built the handle from natural linen micarta with stainless steel pins, I also hot punched and drifted out the hole. The blade is 5 5/8" long, 5/32" thick and 2 1/4" long. The overall length is 9 3/4". This one is available for $260. Let me know what you think!

    I like the fact that you put a bit of a point on the blade. Makes it more useful.
