I forged this cleaver from 1095 high carbon steel and built the handle from natural linen micarta with stainless steel pins, I also hot punched and drifted the hole in the blade. The blade is 5 5/8" long, 5/32" thick and 2 1/4" wide. The overall length of this one is 9 3/4". This is an awesome tool to have in your kitchen.
