Does the tang taper in the handle? :)
Thanks, it has about 8 inches of cutting with 12.5 overall. Not sure of thickness, calipers are in the shop, but it is thin for sure, we wanted a real slicer. It does have a distal taper to the tip, with a slight taper in the tang to keep the weight balance right at the heel. The clayless hamon is true Master Smith beauty, creating a differential heat treat with the edge at 61 RC.

Thank you, Kris.
It sure is a beautiful knife as are many others you have shown.
I always enjoy looking at them.

Thanks FRJ, much appreciated. Here is a cleaver my friend made for me, over 1/4 in thick CPM 3V, heat treated by Peter's using a Delta heat treat at 61RC. This thing is a monster and super abrasion resistant. Distal taper with a slight taper in the tang.
