Please read our Terms below for details. PLEASE NOTE: We take our photos in natural light outdoors and as a result there are sometimes reflections or shadows or glare shown in the blades.
In person none of these exist; we will say so in the description if it may be otherwise. This is a VERY rare and VERY high-quality piece, hand-forged by T. Mann in Spokane, Washington sometime in the early 1900's and offered here in remarkably well-preserved condition. Mann was a very small-scale regional maker who wasn't in business for very long and in my many, many years of collecting cutlery I've only come across a very small handful of their knives and cleavers. That's a pity, too, because their work exudes quality in spades and in terms of its desigh, materials, craftsmanship, condition and especially performance, this fine cleaver wants for nothing.
It's blade is entirely hand-forged from very fine carbon steel with a full and fatted tang, hafted with iron pins and some outstanding rosewood handle scales that are as warm to the touch as they are easy on the eyes. Oddly, this blade has been stamped with its maker's markings on both sides, something I've never seen with any other maker.
As with all carbon steel blades it must be kept dry to prevent rusting but this minor inconvenience is more than offset by the superior performance delivered by carbon steel, as any veteran user can readily confirm. For the purpose of this sale we've had its edge professionally honed up by the good people at Ross Cutlery in downtown Los Angeles, one of the best in the business and it's now WICKEDLY sharp in a way that very few cleavers ever can be.
We urge the utmost in caution or a careless user may find himself in the E. Yes, it is THAT sharp. This is an extremely hefty cleaver, weighing in at 44.2 ounces and measuring 15.25" long with a blade that's 9" long by 4-5/8 wide. To say the least, when chop something in half with this cleaver it's going to stay chopped in half.It's ideal for any chef or butcher needing to work with large sides or quarters of meat, or for any hunter or rancher working with whole game or livestock.
