Most makers of this period (early-mid 20th Century) made non-descript pieces with the usual profile but F. Dick practically turned the humble cleaver into the work of cutler's art you see here.
It's a beechwood-handled piece by this maker, brass riveted over a full and tapered tang, but what really makes it special is its factory wrapping in slip-resistant marine twine, indicating it was originally made for use near water, either by fishmongers or in a wet and slippery food-processing environment. It was crafted with a pleasingly curved line and a fully hand-forged carbon steel blade, made in Esslingen, Germany for use by professionals. Like all carbon steel knives, it must be kept dry, even during use, but this minor inconvenience is more than offset by the superb edge maintenance and performance offered by carbon steel, as any experienced chef or butcher over the age of 50 can confirm. Best of all, perhaps, this exceptional knife was recently given an EXTREMELY sharp professional edge and must be treated with extreme care.You can literally shave your arm with it, stamped, No. It measures 15.5" long with a blade that's 8.25" by 4, humped at the tip to give greater OOMPH! On every lethal blow, weighing in at a VERY impressive 41 ounces. 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, this is an excellent find, offered here in heirloom condition.
