    My internets are being super stupid today, so I had a ton of time between clicking the link and seeing the price to contemplate exactly how much I would spend on this cleaver. Thankfully, it was still quite a bit more than the "damnit, fine I'll buy it anyways" high spot (which is just above the "I can afford this" high spot).

    Crazy nice knife though.

    I bought one of these Hide Cleavers from Jon and I'm very happy with the purchase. Can't get over how easy it is to get razor sharp. Very well made.

    Little too heavy for my taste, but it's reeeeeeeeeally cool looking

    That is soooo nice! I wonder how hefty that is... Im acustomed to a #6. It might be a cool change of pace. Has anyone changed up the weight?

    we have had a few in different thicknesses and weights... some like a #6, some like a #7, and so on
