Looks great Phil. How is the balance on that, looks like a hefty blade but hard to get scale without seeing that handle in the hand?

Hey TC.

Yes, by looking at my "great" photography skills, one may assume that...hehe.

However, the area where the finger choil is curved downwards towards the edge, and the fact that the blade is about 1/8" thick, the balance isn't bad at all. I kinda like it. Having said that, I am by no means a "cleaver" expert, but learned lots on this project.

But what I do know is Badbrass is happy with it, and that is the main thing. We had many discussions while the restoration went on, and I believe that is the key.

And to the other fine folks that gave positive feedback, I thank you all...

Well I think, you have made a cleaver we know I will be happy with! With a piece of steel from you know where, and you did all the request we talked about we will be happy for sure. I do also think talking it over in what I need is important. I look forward to see the cleaver. thanks Again.

As I text Phil tonight: I said I sliced some onions and tomato's with the cleaver before but it was tonight I took out some ground beef out of the freezer to make jerky! And I wished I would have thought of it earlier! Then I thought of the cleaver, and Wow within a couple of chops I was through 1 pound of meat into 1/4 pounds or less, meat to thaw out! I was doing 7lbs. Worked great for this!
Thanks Again!
