Without a doubt, this beautifully patinated and very nicely preserved, heavy-duty, carbon steel meat cleaver is one of the best of its kind by any maker. Most makers of this period (late 19th/early 20th Century) made nondescript pieces with the usual profile but F. Dick practically turned the humble cleaver into the work of cutler's art you see here. It has been used and sharpened extensively but is still in rock-solid condition, as the photos show. Handles are made of solid, premium grade rosewood--a substantial upgrade unto itself from the usual beechwood.Handles are riveted onto a full and tapered tang, and capped at the bolster by a cupola-shaped iron ferrule. Blade is the real star here, stamped, No. It measures 15.5" long with a blade that's 8-5/8" by 4.75, humped at the tip to give greater OOMPH! Weighing in at a very impressive 43.4 ounces it lacks for nothing when it comes to heft. The blade was hand-forged, as evidenced by its tapered tang, which lends the piece a measure of quality that most other cleavers can only dream about. Best of all, though, we've had it professionally edged for this sale and it's now SHARPER than when it first left the factory. Just look at it--a work of the cutler's art.
This cleaver has some true substance to it and will make quick work of any game, livestock or other meats that it may encounter. Whether you're someone who butchers their own livestock or game, a chef in need of some heft in his/her arsenal, or simply a collector looking for one of the finest cleavers ever produced, this is an excellent find, offered here in heirloom condition.
