Please read our Terms below for details. As you can see from the photos it is just a beautiful work of the cutler's art. It's rare to find a piece like this at all but even more so in such beautifully preserved condition.The quality of its steel blade is phenomenal and the finished product speaks for itself with great eloquence, proclaiming for all to hear, THIS is a cleaver to possess, use and display--as fine a piece as has ever been made in this size. It isn't signed but pieces like this rarely are. Not that it matters much--the important thing to recognize is the quality, beauty and utility of such a piece and there's virtually no limit to all three when it comes to this cleaver. Its blade was hand-forged from some incredibly fine carbon steel with a full tang construction that should make any knife person salivate.
This blade has been given a wickedly sharp edge that's just right for a cleaver--not too thin--and I assure you that whatever it is that you want cleaved into two pieces will STAY cleaved with one blow--WHAM! The handle, however, is the true star of this piece, having been painstakingly made from stacked rings of some kind of red composite material (possibly guttapercha) interspersed with solid copper spacers. This stack of rings is sandwiched at bolster with a solid copper ferrule and again at its pommel with a solid steel knob. It's just one of the very best cleaver grips you'll ever get.Truly, there is NOTHING in the modern market so eye-catching or so effective in use. It's 11-3/8 long with a blade that's 3.75" wide by 6.25" long and over 1/4 thick. Despite its heft (it weighs 26.8 ounces), this piece never feels clumsy or unwieldy in the hand--a true testament to the expertise with which it was made. Afterall, lots of makers can produce something that looks nice but if it also functions as beautifully as it appears, then and only then can it be considered a true work of the cutler's art, as this cleaver surely is. Despite its considerable collector value, it'd be a dead shame not to use this piece and I sincerely hope its winner will find a way to keep it working.
An heirloom-quality piece in heirloom-quality condition that is sure to thrill collector and user alike for generations to come.
