NICE Antique MARICOPA Chef's Smaller Carbon Steel Meat Cleaver RAZOR SHARP
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. Combining some SERIOUS heft with everything one could want in terms of materials, craftsmanship, condition and performance, this very nicely preserved chef's carbon steel meat cleaver is all that most chefs will ever require. Most makers of this period (late 19th/early 20th Century) made giant beef splitters in this "bat" style for use like an ax with two hands, but those one-handed cleavers in this style are especially prized--doubly so when found in such beautiful condition. It was made many years ago in the USA by Maricopa Cutlery, though I don't know much about this maker apart from the fact that they were American. I also know that they produced professional cutlery for chefs and the meat-cutting trade, and I suspect they went under before or during the Great Depression, since I've never yet seen an example of their work which is newer than that period. This specimen has been used but is still in excellent condition, as the photos show. Handles are made of solid, premium grade hickory, turned and grooved for a better grip, with a full rat-tail tang, peened over and capped at the pommel with a strong iron ferrule providing reinforcement at the bolster. And Beatty & Sons also produced cleavers in this style but certainly not better; this cleaver is as fine an example as you'll ever find in this size--guaranteed.

Its hand-forged carbon steel blade is the real star here, stamped, "Maricopa, " and nothing more. Measuring 7.5" long by 4.75" wide (cleaver is 14.5 overall length), its blade is humped at the tip to give greater OOMPH! Best of all, perhaps, this exceptional knife was recently given an EXTREMELY sharp edge but please exercise MAXIMUM caution, since a careless user may find himself in the E.

This cleaver has some true substance to it and will make quick work of any game, livestock or other meats that it may encounter. Whether you're someone who butchers their own livestock or game, a chef in need of some heft in his/her arsenal, or simply a collector looking for one of the finest cleavers ever produced in the USA, this is an excellent find.
