Unusually RARE and HUGE Old Vintage Butcher's Iron Battle-ax Meat Cleaver
Please read our Terms below for details. This is a rare and very unusual piece that came to us as part of a much larger collection of knives and cleaver's from a local estate here in the Los Angeles area. In well over 60 years of actively collection such items it's the only one of its kind I've yet seen and I've been unable to learn anything about it at all. My best guess is that it was something custom-made as a one-of-a-kind or close to it, perhaps even for use as a prop in some production for film or tv. Unfortunately, there was no documentation available on any of the collection so that remains only my educated guess. What's beyond speculation, however, is the mass and size of this piece, which weighs in at 81 ounces--just over FIVE POUNDS. It's 18.75" long overall with a blade that's 14.5" long by 6.25" wide and a full 1/2" thick, tapering from there towards the point and also towards its edge. The entire piece has been cast from a single piece of metal, and I think it's cast iron rather than steel. Its handle is especially interesting, as I'm sure you'll agree, with a wide and flat bolster and pommel, all with the addition of pointed knuckles that are fashioned much in the fashion of a World War I trench knife. I don't think this was made to cut pork chops!

It has several markings on it, as you can see in our photos, but each of them lead us to a dead end in our research. On one side of its blade it reads, RIDICULOUS TOOL CO. " and on the other it says either, "SPEED ROT G INC.

" or perhaps it's, "SPEED ROT 6 INC. If you know anything about what either of these markings might mean just let us know and we'll add it to this description. A unique and beautifully crafted piece that will elevate the quality of any collection!
