Minerva cleaver

I just finished this meat cleaver for a friend that's opening a new cafe' in Manhattan. I ground the blade from A-2 tool steel and the handle is oak, treated with Butcher's wax. The oak for the handle came my friend Eric, who had saved pieces of the floor of the California house he grew up in. The blade was hardened to 58 Rockwell and double tempered, then I engraved the name of the cafe in the blade.
