    Here is a pattern welded Chinese style cleaver, this is one of the more difficult forgings I have made and it really pushed the limits of myself and my tools.

    The chuka bocho is really beautiful. It's nice to see custom makers tackle them.

    The grind is distal taper with a half height flat ish grind. The spine at the heel is 1/8 inch thick with about 5mm of belly from heel to mid point and from mid point to tip. The grind is modeled after the Sugimoto #6.

    Thanks Mike! This pattern was probably the most difficult one I have tried to date. A lot of fun but many headaches.
