Summary: it seems that if Jim makes one of these full size cleavers a year it’s a lot so one of these surfacing for sale is relatively rare. The blade on this one is 6-1/2”, overall length is approx. 12”. Fitted with a large nickel silver guard and short spacer stack, finished with a right hand fingered desert ironwood handle. Made from ¼” stock… IT IS A BEAST. One very light insertion mark that can only be seen in direct light… call it near mint.
The custom Sharkskin front panel sheath was made for the cleaver and it has a thigh lanyard tab on the back. Perfect fit, mint condition.
8 photos for review – as shown, a new black canvas carry case is included. While beautiful, this thing will jack you up and take off a finger or two if you’re not careful. It’s like a ¼” stock razor but worse. Much, much worse. So, stop choking the chicken and start chopping the chicken! Thanks and good luck.
