Custom knife trade: cleaver for belt knife

It's not often that I get a chance to own the work of another custom knife maker, but I got the opportunity recently.  When I posted my last cleaver, Ben Tendick said he'd like to get one at some point.  I had actually forged another cleaver at the same time as the one I posted that I had forgotten to stamp my touchmark on, something that almost never happens.  I offered a trade for one of his knives, and he agreed.

The cleaver is 5160 and paracord, and the belt knife is L6 and curly maple.

I think we're both happy with the trade.  :)

  1. I like the curly maple on the belt knife, but the cleaver is one heck of a blade! Bill
