    FOR SALE... Kamagata Nakiri/cleaver clone

    Here is a piece I started working on some time ago. I asked Jon if he could help me name it. His response wa "Call it a Kamagata Nakiri" So there you have it. Its an idea I had last year, thinking it would be a crossover between a cleaver and a nakiri.

    Ok specs:
    Blade is Alabama Damascus "Buckshot" pattern @ HRC 60-61
    230 mm on the edge
    70 mm high
    2.5 mm spine
    distal taper, slight convex grind. Blade edge is flat for about 120 mm in the center, and the toe and tip are raised between 2-3 mm.

    Handle:
    Faux ivory, black G10 on either side of a turquoise spacer and dyed stabilized birds eye maple.

    Asking $650

    Even if you aren't interested in purchasing it, I would like to hear your thoughts on it.

    This is psychedelic! It also looks like it would fit large hands comfortably. I have large hands.

    Looks great Pierre, if I hadn't bought one of Randy's not too long ago, I would be all over this one.

    Lovely..

    My kind of knife definitely..
    Length 230mm
    Weight ?
    Balance point?
    length of handle?

    Now pondering whether the norm/ standard for cleavers or Nakiri is 230cm in length. Will look it up.
