So after a few people expressed interest in this via PMs, this is back on the market. Same guy as before. Great condition, needs a good sharpening, but my wrist still ain't the same after a bike accident a few years ago, and sharpening cleavers is now pretty tricky for me, so I've not dared to sharpen this guy. Because of that, he's up for sale to someone that can make full use of him.

Couple things to note:
1.) Still can't do paypal so if you're interested we'll need to work something out.
2.) Shipping included in US only. International will need to pay the difference.
3.) Because this is being preciptated by people PMing me, three people have right of first refusal on this. After that it goes back into the general pool. Feel free to PM me, but realize there's a line right off the bat.
4.) Because of this odd situation right now, I also won't be accepting any offers for the moment. I'm not saying I won't ever, but I'm not going to until we get through the backlog of interest ;)

Thanks for looking!
Ben

Hey, I mean, let's be honest. This is a non-trivial chuck o' change. Gotta make sure it's the right fit, you know? I really try to make sure that everyone is happy with these sales.
