now i just need to figure out how to post pics...
Thanks for all the comments guys!
A couple more shots of this thing then.
Not sure if these does it, but that's what I was able to do today in between other stuff
As to the measurements of it, it is 108mm*216mm with a total length of about 380mm.
For comparisons sake, the measurements of my Takeda:
It's not shown here, but the Shigefusa is a tiny bit thinner than the Takeda all the way from the edge up to the spine.
Ok, I feel like I am slowly being drawn back into the dark side of cleaverton...must resist shig cleaver purchase and keepy head straight.

How to you like the Belly on that shigi compared to the takeda's flatter profile???.....Review please!!
*Note - The Takeda shown above for comparison is a menkiribocho that's been tweaked. Takeda's chuckabocho is shorter in length, taller in height, and has more belly.
From the descriptions I've seen various places of Takeda's chucka bocho, it appears to me they are around half a cm less tall than this menkiri bocho though.
I don't have one myself, but here's one of the places that speaks of them as about 89mn in height. http://zknives.com/knives/kitchen/kt...vervg210.shtml
No biggie, the main purpose of showing that Takeda with the Shigefusa was that it is the only other cleaver I have, and it seems to be a somewhat known entity around here.
Thanks for pointing out the diffs on them though
Although food release on a cleaver isn't all that much of an issue to me anyway.
In addition it is much lighter and less "weight forwardy" that makes it better for me to use for more than just a quick chop or two.
But as Mr Martell pointed out, they are really two different breeds of cleavers
