This was Andy's cleaver, Dave Martell reshaped the edge, and Andy put a custom handle on it. It does not get much use so I figure it is time to pass it on. Here is what Andy had to say about this knife: "This knife kicks so much ass, I love using it. The blade is AS steel and has been thinned, polished, and the edge re-shaped by Dave for quite frankly the perfect edge curve. The cleaver measures 24.5x9cm. The handle is on the larger side approx 1" wide by 1-1/8" tall. But I think it's the perfect size for the knife. It's not a sissy sized handle. It is made of box elder burl and red mallee burl with stainless steel spacers. This is one of my favorite handles I've ever made. It feels really great in the hand." $400 shipped conus.
