    Greetings everyone,

    I have this massive chopper for today. :)
    It is 37 cm long. The blade is 22 cm long, 7 mm thick and 5.2 cm wide, it is a full tang construction, forged of 1.2516, L6 and 5160 with around 200 layers.
    The handle is made of oak, with copper pins.
    Its sheath is sewn of 4 mm thick, sturdy cowhide.

    Ps: I must notice that if you swinge carefully your thumb perpendicularly to its edge, it makes a wonderful sound, almost like a sound fork :D

    That is very nice! I like the built in guard as the ricasso extends downwards. Nice leaving it rough at the spine too.

    Glad you like it :)
    Yeah, this is a big boy, it had to have a guard of some sort to protect the fingers.
