I've spent quite a bit of time in the woods with big knives, and I can attest to the superiority of the cleaver blade shape. It's the best chopping blade shape out there. However, this knife is much lighter and faster than you'd expect. The blade is wide, but not heavy. This is a brush cleaver more than a log splitter.
The blade is 52100 forged from 1" round bar, differentially tempered and satin finished. The handle is black canvas micarta, scalloped for the best working grip you will ever find on a handle shape that will just beg you to cut something with. The sheath is a deep, full pouch with a "V" notch belt loop.
