You love this gigantic cleaver. This cleaver has been hand forged in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee in USA by a man known by many as Paunch. This is one mighty big cleaver! It's sturdy, impressive, and substantially well made. It's super sharp and should be handled with you extreme care.Some strength is required to lift and use with ease. This will make a tremendous addition to your chef's kitchen, your Butcher's Counter, and your Hunter's Blade Arsenal for Cutting up Large game, or even fir the Housewife who isn't afraid to cut a chicken's head off out back for evening supper. DETAILS: Item: Hand Forged Meat Cleaver Materials: Steel Blade and Wood Handle with Brass Pins Uses: Multiple (mostly we think for the Butcher's Counter or Meat Locker; the Chef's Kitchen; or the Hunter's Blade Arsenal) Overall Size: 15 1/4" long x 7 1/8" at it's widest top to bottom at the far end if the blade. Blade Measurements: 9" long x 7 1/8" wide on the far end of the blade, scooping and tapering down to 6 wide where the blade meets your handle. The top blunt edge of the blade is about 1/8 thick.
It has a nice elegant dip toward the top center. Handle Measurements: 6" long x 1 7/8" wide at the ends x about 7/8 thick. The handle has two smooth subtle dips towards each end on the inside for a better no-slip-type grip that set back from the center and both ends about 1/8; which is just enough to make a difference! Weight: 2 pounds 6 ounces Branded: No.
We cannot find a Maker's Hallmarks, or even an indication of one on the blade or the handle or any of the edges. Condition is Never Before Used!! There are a couple creviced striations to the wood handle on the butt of both sides, which add character, and do not affect functionality at all. They are natural, and add a bit of extra character to an already dramatic large tool.
