For a while I used this Knives of Alaska set.
The ‘cleaver’ is around 3/8″ thick, it will cleave an elk pelvis without damage. I had to have it reground as the angle of the edge was much too blunt and it wouldn’t actually cut.
This and a Cold Steel SRK soured me on thick blades for all around use. If I wanted to bludgeon my way through what I want to cut, I wouldn’t have chosen a knife.
