im on the paunchers today so you will see later what they are i dont know how to discribe them realy ?
cleavers could do but im not sure there would be any advantage me making one unles you want something custom and unusual .
iv got a big chopper i have anealed and cut out , not a cleaver more a blade sports cutter , there is a ton of work in the thing tho !!
it took 4 days to make the 20 for the order !! not bad realy i thought . if i had to do them again i would do things a little differantly and maybe get there faster .
iv still got one or two files left so will try to get some bushcrafters done for orders by friday and i can leave teeth on if people wanted ? all the above knives that went to the order still had there teeth but i surface ground them back to leave the pattern but not so they could realy file anything . i spose for bushcraft haveing the ability to still file small objects would be an advantage ?
