Vintage / Antique Hog Splitter / Butcher's Meat Cleaver. The cutting edge measures approx. 13" and it tapers from 6 3/4" wide at the end to a little less than 5 wide near the handle. I did not see a name anywhere on the splitter but there is a letter P and the numbers 9 20 13.
The splitter does show a bit of wear. It was probably left out in the weather at one point in time. The metal part is rusted so the surface is not smooth and the cutting edge has some chips. The handle is cracked - it looks like it is cracked all the way through on both sides. There is a rope wrapped around it (it has come undone in areas).I don't know if the rope was original or if it was added after the handle started to split. The head (metal part) is also not entire secure to the handle.
I had lifted it and carried it around quite a few times - moving over the years and recently (taking pictures / measuring) and had no problems until this last time I picked it up to inspect it during posting the item and the head fell down. It didn't fall off completely as it had hit the towel it was sitting on right after I started to lift it up but it showed that it is not a tight solid fit with the handle.
