    To cleaver fan, just saw a yoshi SLD up for sale

    This chukka looks pretty:




    Just saw it at Takeshi's place: a Yoshikane SLD thin slicer ...

    Am drooling again.

    Sweet! I think that western handles an bolsters look cool on eastern knives. Kind of a "so wrong, it's right" thing.
    Link?

    Dam that is sweet. I just have to break down and get a cheap one to see if I would like one.

    Pretty nice looking. 463 grams. Not bad for a Yoshikane.

    the handle seems more suited for a gyuto, usually handles-even western ones on cleavers are a little bigger. I bet I could get used to it though. Might push the balance a little more forward than usual which would be good for a cleaver perhaps.

    I like the edge profile, and I'm sure the steel is really nice, but that handle would hold me back from getting it. Assuming I had the money to spare for it at the moment, that is

    See that this morning, if I hadn't just bought some new knives I'd be all over it. I keep moving away from cleavers as I don't think they're the most appropriate style for my current job, but they're just so much fun to use

    In spite of being a bit heavy looks quite thin. Sure it is a great cleaver.

    The Forum Cleaver has a western handle, which works surprisingly well.
