I changed the edge profile,cut in new bevels and put a distal taper on her. Her weight was 576gr and now is 443gr.The old spine measured 3.3mm tapering to 2.7mm and now the spine is 2.8mm tapering to 1.4mm.

Wow, that's a big overhaul! Looks like it was a fun project.

Nice job, that's a lot of steel to lose, how does it cut?

That's a nice change on the edge.

Is that your cleaver? How does that huge thumbnotch work?

Hopefully you had power tools Mario. I re-profiled a Kagayaki cleaver about a year ago on my DMT XXC...took many sessions and was NOT a fun project to do, but I was satisfied with the results.

It is my cleaver and the cut-out allows you to choke up your grip on the blade.I did test it on some 'taters and it cut great even with out it being sharpened.Honestly I am not a cleaver guy,I have to move my boardsmith to the table so I can you it.I do love the steel on this blade so I might force myself to use it more often. Thanx

This sounds just like Mizuno should have done to begin with. I bet this is a great performer now.

I finally was able to put a handle on this cleaver.I am not real happy with the handle but I am not going to drop more cash into something I do not use very often.

That's pretty sweet, IMO. Got a little tummy tuck from the surgeon and a new set of duds from the tailor. All set for a night out in the kitchen.

Whew, that was a lot of work, for sure.

Great job, Mario -
