This is my 2nd knife that i have been making. I don't know what you would categorize it as other than a bunka/cleaver hybrid?

Made from 01.

The handle is just a demo to get an idea. It has not been heat treated yet.

All critiques welcome

Intriguing choice to do a convex heel. Everyone else seems to go the other way. Maybe you should match the curve slightly in the frontal flat to balance the visuals?

I'd move the very tip up just a few millimeters so one can do push cuts without having to worry about the tip digging into the cutting board even if the angle is not 100% correct. I for one like to do push cuts with the tip angled ever so slightly downwards, then let the knife rock towards the heel as I hit the board.
