    That cleaver rocks!!

    That Forgecraft looks to be in good shape - maybe try a rehandle on it.

    I think that Forgecraft has sat in a drawer for 60 years. It doesn't appear to have ever been sharpened.

    Forgies have an interesting grind being somewhat hollow in between the spine and the cutting edge.

    Yeah. I was reading somewhere (probably here) that they used a very large diameter wheel to grind them, giving them that subtle hollow grind.

    The Forgecraft grind is flat up top, somewhat concave/hollow about a cm from the edge, and even into the edge, as far as I can tell. It's a big part of why they are such proficient cutters. Combine that with a really great profile and you have a really solid knife.

    That one is a 4*elephant at 9 3/4". It has a sick taper and the tip is paper thin. The first one I used that tapers to nothing like that. The previous one is labeled bazaar New York made in France and its 9" and not as wide. I'm currently using both of these on the line and they are great.
