Please read our Terms below for details. PLEASE NOTE: We take our photos in natural light outdoors and as a result there are sometimes reflections or shadows or glare shown in the blades.In person none of these exist; we will say so in the description if it may be otherwise. If you hunt, raise livestock or just prefer to butcher your own meats, you'll find NONE finer. This outstanding vintage Forschner Damascus XXXX chef's meat cleaver was made in the USA with some of the finest steel ever affixed to a chef's knife.
It is large and heavy but it's balanced, not clumsy. To say the least it's more than substantial enough to chop whatever you put in front of it--on the first blow. If you've never before used a cleaver like this, you're in for a most pleasant surprise. As with all carbon steel cutlery it will rust if not properly kept dry, but takes a RAZOR edge like no other, and outperforms stainless steel in almost every way. We've had it professionally sharpened for this sale and it's sharp enough now to thrill even the most jaded user--FAR sharper than when it was new--so we urge the utmost in caution.You must wipe it down after each use but its beauty and superior performance are worth it. Obviously, this cleaver has been used but it is entirely solid and as ready for daily use today as it was over 100 years ago when it first forged.
Without a doubt, it is still capable of providing its lucky winner--and his grandchildren--with heirloom quality for use and posterity. It weighs in at an impressive 45.4 ounces and measures 16-1/8" long with 9" by 4.5 blade.It was hafted with lustrously patinated beechwood handles riveted onto a full and fatted tang, arm in the hand and very easy on the eyes. As you can see, this is a fantastic piece for use or display. Don't pass up an opportunity to truly elevate the quality of cutlery in YOUR kitchen, amateur or professional.
And it's never too early to find the perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for chef on your list! A WORD ABOUT MAINTENANCE: Never use a dishwasher. Wash the knife by hand and wipe clean immediately thereafter. Wipe the knife clean when using it on wet or acidic foods. It WILL rust if not maintained properly.I apply a very thin coat of non-toxic mineral oil to blade and wooden handles periodically, to seal them from ambient moisture in the atmosphere (olive or corn oil will suffice).
