im selling this fantastic cleaver to make room for some new purchases. i thinned the cleaver lightly and its performance improved alot. my thinning job is certainly not perfect as you can tell from the pics but whatever. if i cant get a decent price ill probably just take this sale down because im not sure cleavers can really perform much better than this without spending a couple hundred more $$$. ill let it go for $245 shipping included. thanks.
