Please read our Terms below for details. Without a doubt, one of the finest--and LARGEST--antique cleavers you'll ever see that was meant to be wielded with only one hand.
Made in the USA by the Acme Cutlery Company, this very nicely preserved and heavy-duty carbon steel meat cleaver is a beautifully preserved example by one of America's finest makers of tools for the meat-cutting industry. It has been used but is in excellent condition, as the photos show and in one key way is BETTER than when it was new, having received a professionally applied edge for this sale and now PERFECTLY sharp. Handles are made of solid, premium grade beechwood riveted onto a full and fatted tang; it is very easy to see that this maker strived to compete with Foster Bros. And the White company of Buffalo, NY. It's difficult to put a price on what this cleaver is worth to someone who will use it because there is nothing of comparable quality on the modern market with which to compare it, and to get comparable quality (materials, craftsmanship, design, condition and especially SIZE) you'd have to contract with a custom knife maker and pay several hundred dollars.
Measuring 9.25" long by a whopping 5-5/8" wide (cleaver is 17-3/8 overall length), its blade is humped at the tip to give greater OOMPH! It weighs in at a very hefty 38 ounces--well over two POUNDS. Best of all, though, the blade was hand-forged, lending it a measure of quality that most cleavers can only dream about. 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 in the USA, this is an excellent find, offered here in heirloom condition.
