My last knife was a carbon steel chinese cleaver. Seems like a rustic utensil but if you think that it can be traced back to thousands of years of history and served for culinary purposes for thousands of millions of people you have to think there's something unique in this simple design. Once you begin using it you get to understand what: versatile, easy to sharpen, keeps sharp for ages, doubles as a scraper, etc.

Traded for this one, fits nicely into my edc. It is 2.9 inches long, which is perfect as 3+ is an issue where I live. It is a Honey Badger, the action is super smooth and it is easy to fidigit with lol :)

Just got these Marble's knives. Two equal end Cattle Kings (red jig bone and stag bone) and a sleeveboard whittler. Fit and finish is very good and they are a great value for the price. The Cattle knives are a nice handful at 4 1/8" closed and the whittler is 3.5". The handmade pocket slip in my new preferred design.

Hope ya'll enjoy,thanks for looking
