    what I found out is that the steel is taken to HRC 62-63, I like it.

    That's really interesting. I asked how high the AEB-L on my proposed Swedish Stainless cleaver could be taken to and the reply was 60 because any higher and it would be too brittle (standard for stainless cleavers is 59, apparently).

    yes I was expecting lower HRC but 62-63 sounds very good.

    I think I may also have to try a custom cleaver from them. It is too hard to resist. Can't wait to hear how yours turns out!

    I got it today, man this is the definition of laser for a cleaver.
    Made really well, handle work is flawless. Distal taper is amazing, cuts really easy right OOTB, the geometry is the best I have seen, and I have tried Suien VC, Tadatsuna, Misono. The only cleaver that had similar geometry was the Yoshikane I I owned.
    I'll post some pics later.

    So far I am very impressed.

    That is pretty badass, congrats. Thanks for posting this. Man, I know I'm done buying knives but some of these really pique my interest. I'm looking forward to more pics and impressions.

    I have the standard 225x110mm Ashi Ginga White#2 Chuka and that thing is already thin - just trying to imagine what this one is like is enough to blow my mind!! Twice!!

    Anyone in Sydney wants to buy mine, I'm open to offers!

    Ok tried to take some pics of the geometry heel and tip side:






    Pretty thin stuff, those guys did a superb job, the grind is flawless.

    Shee-it!! The tip is so thin, it could be in another dimension!!

    I was looking at mine last night and thought 'gee, I can't imagine it could get much thinner than that' - now I know it can.
