    Shigefusa Cleaver

    The mythical Shigefusa Chucka-bouchou is finally reality after a long wait of nearly 3 years. Made for me in a special custom size of 210x100mm and "thin", it is truly unique. I have never seen a Shige cleaver, so I'm really curious. In the photos it looks like an absolute beaut, but what else would you expect from a Shige? It'll be in my hands soon.

    he has made one as far as know but not for US.
    Nice piece.
    3 years wait is outrageous though.

    So THAT's the one you were hinting at before! Can't wait for some hands-on impressions! What's the steel?

    Shigefusa uses only his modified Swedish carbon steel

    Wow that's nice slab of steel!!! You have the patience of Job. Well Job had patience, you had no choice but to wait. Anyway this is the perfect example of, "Somethings are worth waiting for."

    Oh I'm sure in the more than half century of making knives that many cleavers have been made, I've just never seen one. Not online and certainly not in person. I was also happily surprised that it was made to my size request, and without any special markup in cost. From the looks of things so far it was worth the wait
