It's similar to those American and British cleavers made in the style of what was called a "bat, " because of the shape of its handle, whose handles were turned with a full and hidden tang peened over at the pommel. Whereas most handles of this variety were ridged, this one is smooth, indicating an older date of origin. Handle is unblemished, made of solid, premium grade birchwood, with a sleeved brass ferrule for support at the bolster in fastening the blade. Has a full, rat-tail tang, peened over at pommel with an iron pommel disc. The hand-forged blade is beautifully patinated, 7.25" long (12.75" overall), 3.5 wide, making it ideal for home or restaurant, meat locker or butcher shop.At 23 ounces it has some true heft to it and will make quick work of any game or meats that it may encounter, but will require less muscle. While it has obvious collector value, it'd be a stone-cold shame if it weren't used anymore, even if only to hack the occasional chicken into it's 8 respective parts 10 if you count the head and that part that goes last over the fence! A beautiful older piece for use or display.
