- verified customerI first bought the standard Fanatic cleaver, but then a week later the Fanatic Thin cleaver came out. The idea of a thinner, lighter cleaver appealed to me, and Mark very generously allowed me to trade in my unused Fanatic for a Fanatic Thin. The thin version has a significant distal taper, as the thickness specs imply. It's a little lighter than the standard Fanatic, which is nice. The micarta handle is perfectly functional, though IMHO a pinch grip makes handle ergonomics a secondary consideration. The edge was sharp out of the box, but I touched it up and then stropped it with 0.5-micron chromium oxide. The AEB-L sharpens up like a dream, but you probably already knew that. The blade has minimal belly, which works well for me in a cleaver. I'm pleased with the knife; as always, CKTG's service is top notch.
