Default Cleaver in the making!

With the last purchase from Phil McCracken, in which I'm very impressed in the knife he sent me, as stated before! I asked him if he would consider to finish off a Cleaver I had cut out of AR-500 plate in which I had worked in a high-through put grain elevator! This Plate was used in the high-wear area's off the head of the transfer and shipping legs! But in time these needed to be replaced. Long story short! 15 years ago I cut a design of a cleaver out of this steel and it sat and did nothing! But now I have sent it to him, he has looked at it! made some adjustment's to the metal and it a go! We discussed the proposed shape of the cleaver itself & the handle, and the handle material, i think it will be great! Thanks!
