    I am interested in a Mr Saji Deba in stag horn, ginsanko 3. Not sure of the quality on it as i've been warned for cheap debas.

    Don't know if the stag horn is real; I had planned to put a stabilized California burl handle on on mine so it was not an issue. For whatever my assessment is worth, cheap is NOT an adjective I would use with this cleaver, it is superior in quality to any cleaver (indeed any knife) I have held so far!

    Hax CLEAVERS RULE!!!

    It's real horn, just the finish of the blade i'm worried about. Aesthetically i don't care. As long as it's not bent.
    I'll be speaking with Koki about it and see what he can tell me when i have some more specifics.

    I guess it wpould depend on how much you use your cleaver, I have found the more I use it the more I use it. I have ordered this one and a medium-weight blade from JKI, this is my first venture into the custom knife world. The edge seems great to me, I can't imagine needing something much sharper but in all fairness I have not tried a custom single edge blade. This is a heavier cleaver, I intend to use it as a compliment to my lighter chukabochos, I believe it may be too heavy to use as your only cleaver.

    Congrats on the new loot. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts; I must admit, I've been lusting over one of Takeshi Saji's cleavers for ages now but I just can't bring myself to drop that much. Maybe I should sell some stuff

    Nice Cleaver! Am I safe to say there aren't all that many damascus cleavers out there?
    Am I the only one who searched for The Edge from U2 and ended up here?
