    Mizuno Cleaver Rehab




    I changed the edge profile,cut in new bevels and put a distal taper on her. Her weight was 576gr and now is 443gr.The old spine measured 3.3mm tapering to 2.7mm and now the spine is 2.8mm tapering to 1.4mm.

    Nice job, that's a lot of steel to lose, how does it cut?

    That's a nice change on the edge.

    Is that your cleaver? How does that huge thumbnotch work?

    Hopefully you had power tools Mario. I re-profiled a Kagayaki cleaver about a year ago on my DMT XXC...took many sessions and was NOT a fun project to do, but I was satisfied with the results.

    It is my cleaver and the cut-out allows you to choke up your grip on the blade.I did test it on some 'taters and it cut great even with out it being sharpened.Honestly I am not a cleaver guy,I have to move my boardsmith to the table so I can you it.I do love the steel on this blade so I might force myself to use it more often. Thanx

    This sounds just like Mizuno should have done to begin with. I bet this is a great performer now.

    I finally was able to put a handle on this cleaver.I am not real happy with the handle but I am not going to drop more cash into something I do not use very often.
