    Takeda White #1 Cleaver

    I wanna be a cleaver guy, but I'm not. This is my second attempt and they just don't work for me. I think I am too short and my counters are too high. It's just going to sit around collecting dust, it is a good conversation piece though.

    This really is a one of a kind, it's a Menkiri-bocho that Dave did some work on to add belly and round the tip. It also has a very nice Stefan handle

    251mm long
    91mm high @ heel
    95mm high @ front (10mm back of tip)
    4mm wide spine @ heel
    2mm wide spine @ tip
    Weighs right around 500g

    $400.00 Shipped in conUS

    I hear ya, Mike. But, don't sell yourself short (yup). At 6', and a board just below my waist, I'm not a cleaver guy either.

    This one is beautiful, and the price is definitely right!

    Is it just me or does all the good stuff go on sell right after I spend a very large amount on something else?

    Looks great, good luck with the sell.

    Im not getting this one guys even though its my two favorite things rolled into one. Takeda + cleaver. But if whoever buys it wants insurance on it, Ill prolly buy it from you in 3 months or so
