How about some more dimensions, weight, thickness etc...
Yes, dimensions, please.
I'm really surprised this is still here... that's an absolute steal at 4 bills. It would prolly cost about twice that to get one new (thats if you could even talk butch into it, lol)

Sorry this has taken so long. I will try to get back to some of the PM's soon.
Weight- 346 grams
Thickness over heel- Spine 2.37; Midway 1.6; 1 CM from edge .78
Thickness Midway- Spine 2.28; Midway 1.21; 1 CM from edge .54
Thickness at tip- Spine 1.84; Midway 1.05
It's an awesome taper and thin behind the edge. Only reason I'm selling it is because I don't use it enough and have a Harner gyuto on the way.
So....Im in the market for a laser-ish cleaver. Ive been really tempted to unload on a Takeda 220mm. I love my Takeda Gyuoto, and a matching knife in the case would be nice. How would you compare this to the Takeda? I kind of like the front end on this knife, looks like it would be useful for a rock and chop. Forgive my newbieness, looking for good insight before I let go of any more moneys.
Sorry for the short question. Let me expand. Is this cleaver better in action than the Takeda, or does it outperform, or are they two totally different animals and Ill have to purchase both of them to find that out? Is this a good chopping cleaver that can handle a beating? I understand supporting the small guy over the smaller guy, but I also really like the Takeda for its J handle, and have been trying to step away from western handles.
