THE SHARPENING INSTRUCTIONS ARE ON THE TAG. THERE IS A COATING OF SURFACE RUST AS SEEN IN THE PICTURES. I HAVEN'T DONE ANYTHING WITH THE CLEAVER.THE BLADE ITSELF IS 13 3/4 INCHES. I HAVE SEARCHED THE INTERNET AND WAS UNABLE TO FIND ANOTHER LARGE CLEAVER LIKE THIS ONE THAT HAS THE WOODEN HANDLE.
NONE SEEMS TO EXIST, SO EXTREMELY RARE. THE MAKER'S NAME AND AN ARROW ARE STAMPED INTO THE METAL OF THIS CLEAVER. IMPOSSIBLE TO REFERENCE THIS MODEL NUMBER ADDING TO IT'S RARITY.
