    I think Kaleab did the handle, I'd like to know what materials were used. It seems like copper spacing but I don't know the wood material.

    just scored this vintage F. Dick slicer off ebay last week. More of a modest purchase this time, but im still real happy with it. plus the logo is really cool.



    not the best pics, just using my iphone, and theres still some cleaner stuck in the logo, but trust me, in person its pretty nice.

    Brad, sorry for the late response, the handle is ironwood with copper spacers.

    Next to a Konosuke #6, Fujiwara on the left.

    Weighs 535g so I guess I guess it's closer to a #7 in weight but the geometry is a bit closer to a #6. Actually pretty thin behind the edge but there's not a dramatic taper from the spine to the edge....if that makes sense, kinda contradictory. F+f is okay, pretty much what I expect from a cleaver; choil and spine are a little rough, handle is decent but not great, arrived with a great edge but there is a small wave near the heel, not a big deal though. It'll go on the stones later so hopefully that'll fix itself.

    I'll post some more thoughts after I've sharpened and used it.

    I should add, I bought straight from Fujiwara's website. He took a few days to confirm my order, but shipping was quick and I even got a free Fujiwara branded tea towel for keeping my knives dry

    Cheers,
    Josh
