    I'd LOVE to say yes but the truth is that I may hate doing these and there may not be more than this one. Only time will tell. Thanks for your interest though.

    Well I have to order some steel for this so I might as well order enough to do a few. I will do the first one as soon as I can but I will take orders for others (to be done in line) if anyone is interested.

    Stats - The cleavers will be made using O-1 at Rc60-61. The handle may be either full tang or hidden but will be western(ish), probably a single type of wood without a bolster. It will be a little different than what I do with knives - more cleaveresque but not round barrel looking like a CCK. I haven't determined an exact size on the blade (or obviously a weight) but it'll be around 220mm x 110mm but don't hold me to those exact dimensions.

    Now for the cost - $575 (plus shipping)
    *This is an introductory price that may (and likely will) increase if I decide to do more.


    Please shoot me a PM if you're interested and we can talk details.

    Thanks folks!
    Dave

    I forgot to mention that I may be using 52100 for this first round of trial cleavers. The reason is steel availability more than anything.
