I wanna be a cleaver guy, but I'm not. This is my second attempt and they just don't work for me. I think I am too short and my counters are too high. It's just going to sit around collecting dust, it is a good conversation piece though.

This really is a one of a kind, it's a Menkiri-bocho that Dave did some work on to add belly and round the tip. It also has a very nice Stefan handle

251mm long
91mm high @ heel
95mm high @ front (10mm back of tip)
4mm wide spine @ heel
2mm wide spine @ tip
Weighs right around 500g

$400.00 Shipped in conUS

I hear ya, Mike. But, don't sell yourself short (yup). At 6', and a board just below my waist, I'm not a cleaver guy either.

This one is beautiful, and the price is definitely right!

Is it just me or does all the good stuff go on sell right after I spend a very large amount on something else?

Looks great, good luck with the sell.

Im not getting this one guys even though its my two favorite things rolled into one. Takeda + cleaver. But if whoever buys it wants insurance on it, Ill prolly buy it from you in 3 months or so :)

Very tempting, if it's still up by the time I get home, I may bite.

I have no idea, as it has yet to arrive;)
Hopefully it is on the way over here by now though, so hopefully I will be able to report back soon on it's performance.
