Default Making a cleaver

What are y'all thoughts on his cleaver I'm making?
I have never made anything this big and my first time doing file work also.

Looks nice. I for one do like some file work, but its almost becoming to much these days. The 'old' clean look of no file work looks better imo. Keep doing what you're doing tho. Looks good.

The scribe line is where I'm going to start the flat ground bevel.

Needs a hole up front/top for that classic cleaver look! I like it!
