So, I've had my hands wrapped around this thing for a few weeks. Am I crazy, or is this one of the smoothest feeling blades ever? I've grown very fond of my Last Rites though I never carry it, and I love every iteration of Infimandu I own. But I think this might actually be my new favorite piece. It's not like with my health and strength I can really put any Busse product to a serious test, but for my skill/strength/ability, it seems like I'm able to use this as a chopper and it performs almost as well, if not better than some of my other 10" blade length knives because I can get so much momentum with it. Completely different use profile, but I think it's going to replace my entire "heavy duty" kitchen stuff all by itself. Granted, we're only talking about a cleaver, and a 10" chefs knife. The cleaver only gets used for things like butterflying chickens, the 10" chefs knife for BIG meat. But, anything else most people would use a cleaver for, I just use a saw anyway. It's easier for me and I don't process whole animals very often.
