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. This is a rare piece of exceptional size and quality, made in Boston by Underhill, and probably representing one of the largest meat cleavers you'll ever see that was made to be used with only one hand. At 18.75" long with an elephant-ear blade 13" long and 5-3/8" wide, it weighs in at a very impressive 48.7 ounces: a DEADLY piece that speaks the monosyllabic final word in ANY argument you'll ever have with meat or bone--"WHAM!If you're a hunter who processes your own game or someone who raises their own livestock for slaughter wooly mammoths, for example! , you'll immediately recognize the value of such a piece. Its blade is stamped "UNDERHILL, BOSTON, " in the upper, end corner of blade. This maker produced knives, cleavers, axes and other tools, primarily to supply the vast stockyards that then surrounded the greater Boston area, as well as to fisheries and canneries up and down the New England coast. It has been used but is still in excellent condition, as the photos show. Its ax-like handle was made of solid, premium grade walnut, worn smooth and darkly patinated by the passing of a hundred years and the touch of a thousand hands. It's a full and hidden tang piece, peened over at the butt of its handle and held fast with the addition of a pommel. Its blade is the real star here, though--hand-forged by expert steelsmiths from some of the finest American carbon tool steel ever batched and fired, giving the entire piece the kind of quality that later, factory-forged cleavers can only dream about. Whether you're a chef or butcher 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 beautiful condition, as you can see.
