    That's a good looking cleaver. Tactical cleaver? :)

    It's a good idea to include the dimensions when you post it. Surprising how many people don't, and then potential buyers have to ask. Easiest way is to lay a tape measure alongside in the pics. Maybe state what the thickness is, since that's not as easy to capture in a picture.

    The shape of the cleaver, especially the horn on the end, reminds me of a Samoan war club that I bought about twenty years ago, when it was still possible to get one like that without mortgaging your house. Here's a picture of the monster. It's 3' long, weighs 3.5 lbs, and is made of some kind of incredibly hard, dense rosewood. If you can zoom in on the picture you'll see that the maker put in a huge amount of time on the engravings, which are done with great skill.
