Please read our Terms below for details. This beautiful old cleaver is a very special piece and also a very big deal in more ways than one. Weighing in at an impressive 41 ounces it's more than enough cleaver for any chef, butcher, hunter or rancher. Also impressive is the way in which it has been given new life by a former owner, who replaced its original handle scales with new ones carved from what I believe is some very fine bloodwood.Instead of the usual 3-rivet pattern that it probably was made with it was customized in a unique pattern of 7 smaller brass pins that give it an antique authenticity and considerable beauty. It was made in upstate New York, probably in the early 1900's and is exemplary of the fine quality for which this once-proud maker was famous.
What will be for many it's greatest distinction is that it comes in a very thick, heavy-duty leather belt sheath that will be a GODSEND for butcher or fishmonger--for ANYONE who needs to reach for it constantly throughout their workday. Hunters, too, will be greatly interested in this if they're seasoned enough to have learned the unmatched utility of bringing a cleaver along for everything from jointing out large game to making a blind. It's as good as it gets at its heart and will provide many generations of your progeny with outstanding service if properly maintained.It has been used but is still in rock solid condition, as the photos show, with no problems of any kind. Measuring 9" long by 4" wide (cleaver is 15-3/8 overall length), humped at the tip to give greater OOMPH! 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 and UNIQUE find, offered here in ready-to-work condition.
