    Really not into the angled corners on the bolster as well. I'm also not feeling the cleaver handles at all, they look somewhat sterile and unassertive to me. The mosaic pin ruins the third one for me as well, goes against what I feel the knife is going to stand for. I like the mock-up handle best of the options shown, but I always prefer western handles with a slight hook in the butt of the handle for aesthetics and when using varied grips, it really feels like it locks the knife if your hand when doing tip centric work with your index finger on the spine.

    In Australia we have a saying " a platypus is a duck designed by a committee" I don't think it's possible to reach a "unanimous" design. But the most important thing is not the handle/ bolster its the profile/ grind/ f&f my 2c

    Huw, I love that saying. It's hilariously funny and incredibly accurate!

    As for a bit of clarification on last night's post, I'm wondering about the proportions of cleaver 1's handle (ferrule/bolster length and thin spacer), with a combo of G10 and cocobolo. As for pins, I'm still all for one, but three is good too. I like the look of the two pins on the cleaver handle, but not everyone will, and it's true "decorate in odds"; it appeals to the eye, naturally...kinda like the rule of thirds, in photography.

    Anywho, I'll be out and about, because my best-friend is expecting his first child, today!!!!! I'm sure I'll be on here a bit, while waiting.

    i'm in agreement with this. it's always nicer to have an odd number, either 1 pin or 3 pins. =D

    same with plating on a dish.... odd numbers are better....

    and the g10 cocobolo combo

    I'm coming late to this party, but it looks like a great project. In my opinion rosewood with brass pins and bolster would look fantastic and be a great nod to historic American craftsmanship. Nice yellow brass would patina right along with the carbon too. Brass pins is also another nod to the old Sab's

    Ok, G10 and cocobolo... My wife let me have a few minutes... So its rough!

    I tried to incorporate as much as I could from the comments, as well keep simplicity of manufacturing/construction in mind, thus keep cost down.

    That's the one. That does it aesthetically for me.
