This beautifully preserved antique cleaver is a uniquely fashioned piece that surely was made by some village blacksmith rather than in any factory. It is a MASSIVE piece that came to us from Southern Italy near Calabria where it surely served in some slaughterhouse, dealing the coup de grace to cattle and other larger livestock. Regardless of its manufacturing origin, there can be no disputing its unique beauty and utility. Its blade is unusually thick, large and strong, hand-forged from some very fine carbon steel Handles are hardwood over a full tang with iron rivets, all intact.Measures a whopping 32" long with a blade that's 15" along the edge, 8.75 wide and weighing in at a very impressive 8 lbs. In every respect a truly great find for chef or folk-art lover and an instant heirloom for user and collector alike.
