Old Pusino Netro Vintage Antique Kitchen Cleaver Carbon Chef Knife HORN handle. I might have the spelling wrong on the chop. It looks like Pusino/Netro to me. Things are not, however, always what they appear.
This very singular hand made knife is approx 14 OAL. The blade, which has a sharp edge which has a few small nicks, is about 10 total, and has dark patina, some old rust and small pitting scars.It weighs 1lb 1.5 ozs. The width, at the bolster, is 1 3/16.
The widest dimension is 2.5. This hand forged blade has hammer marks and the width of the spine is variable, from about 3/16" to 1/4". The steel bolster is strong and secure, as is the steel pommel cap where the rattail tang was peened.
Thius is a solid knife. If you plan to use it, I recommend you resharpen the edge and that it gets some additional/proper cleaning. MORE INTERESTING KNIVES NOW LISTED!
