Very rare Betty & SON JUMBO meat cleaver! There is a lot of information available on what was Americas foremost producer of cleavers and bladed tools. All sources indicate the name did not change from Beatty & SON, to Beatty & SONS until 1839.This cleaver is definitely PRE-1839!!! I have another Beatty & Son that is even older, but not as big that I may list eventually. The cleaver is CLEAN, with no cracks or significant pitting. The original hickory handle is cracked but is still in one piece and still feels good in the hands and displays very well!
Unlike many old cleavers this one was not abused and is not mushroomed out. The cutting edge is 13 long, the entire cleaver is 35 long! The blade is just a touch over ½ where is meets the handle!
The cleaver weighs in at a HEAVY 7 ½ pounds!!! Unreal piece of history your family can enjoy for generations.This is not my occupation, so I wont get too long winded about customer service.
