Ok Guys , I'm almost ready to cut steel with this project .
From what I've read in the feed back and looked at on the internet , this is what I'm leaning toward as the specs on the cleaver .
1) Length - 220mm
2) Height - 100mm
3) Thickness -2.5mm@ thickest w/distal taper to (hopefully) 1mm
4) Handle - Wa style
5) Edge - Flat , except for a minor bit of belly (25mm or so) at heel and tip .
If there are any changes you think should be considered , please let me know . After all , it is for you ..
Thanks again for all of your input and interest .
