Hey all! I picked this guy up recently, she's a total beaut. Easily the thinnest cleaver I've ever seen/held, and stunning fit/finish. I am having a hard time parting with this one but I need to thin out the herd.

Looking for $500 $450 here including shipping to the lower 48, I will cover the first $20 of international shipping.

The details:

26c3 mono-steel w/hamon

Wrought ferrule, heirloomed against some curly Acacia

183x95mm

244.5g

Spine tapers all the way down to 0.7mm.... it disappears when you look down the spine. I took a shot for you

Condition: Used about 5x total. Stropped once, not sharpened on stones by me. Has patina. Has two small "dents" near the spine up by the tip, I think this happened in transit to me. They are absolutely tiny but I want to disclose them before you receive it and are surprised. The blade is so thin I don't think it takes much to do something like that to it. You cannot see them when looking down the spine, can only see from the side angle.

Video here:

This truly is an insane price for this piece, but I think my kitchen counter height is a little too high for me to make it work T.T someone please pick this up
Hahaha. Forgive my ignorance: what does counter height have to do with a cleaver vs any other blade? (Not sarcasm, curious)

My counter height is pretty tall relative to me, so with taller knives on a cutting board, my arm is already retracted and has less room to move up and down comfortably, even moreso for blades with flat profiles

Fair enough!
 
Grind looks killer on this.

I feel some better pictures of this piece might help get this thread moving. Just my observation. Best of luck
Thanks! You're right I should definitely take photos instead of just the video
