This large cleaver was likely used as a two handed carcass splitter. It is 31 /2 or 32 inches long(depends where it is measured) with a 12 1/2 or 13 inch blade. The handle is solid, the tang goes through the handle and has a nut on the end. The blade is marked SOLID STEEL Foster Bros with an arrow through a diamond as a trade mark.I see no damage, it does not appear to have been pounded on or used as a splitting wedge. It has fine light rust but I see no pitting and think that it just has set for many years unused.
