This SUPEBLY preserved and EXTRA large, heavy-duty carbon steel meat cleaver comes from one of America's most storied cutlery companies, made many years ago in Massachusetts by Russell in their legendary Green River Works. Most famous for thier skinning knives, which helped win the west, the company was also one of the world's foremost names in professional cutlery for chefs and the meat-cutting trade, mostly for supplying the vast stockyards surrounding the greater Boston and New York metro areas. Compare it side by side with those by Foster Bros. It has been used but is still in excellent condition, as the photos show, and in one very key way is BETTER than when it was new, having been professionally edged for this sale by the good folks at Ross Cutlery in downtown Los Angeles, one of the best in the business.As such, it's FAR sharper than when it was new, guaranteed to thrill even the most jaded veteran user. Handles are made of solid, premium grade cherry--something of a rarity for any Russell knife. Riveted onto a full and tapered tang, as warm to the touch as they are beautiful to behold. Blade is the real star here, measuring 8.5" long by 4.25" wide (cleaver is 14 overall length), humped at the tip to give greater OOMPH! Best of all, though, the blade was hand-forged, as evidenced by its tapered tang, which lends the piece a measure of quality that most American-born 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. It weighs in at a very hefty 26.7 ounces--more than enough for most users today. 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 ready-to-work condition. Don't let it get away.
