Made in the 1800s by WM Beatty & Sons of Chester, Pennsylvania, this tool is a pure piece of American history. WM Beatty & Sons were one of America’s most prolific edge toolmakers, including broad axes used by shipwrights. Many of WM Beatty's cleavers of this era portray a cow stamp on the blade. This particular piece shows a proud bull stamped above the name WM Beatty. Meet your meet with bullish ferocity.
At New West KnifeWorks, we cherish the tradition of knife-making even as we forge new paths of innovation. Our refurbished cleavers come from an era where extraordinary steel was extremely cheap. To make cleavers of this mass and quality of steel today would be prohibitively expensive to produce from scratch. But our makers search out these diamonds in the rough at old antique shows, flea markets or grandma’s garage, refurbishing the blades and handles to give them a new, improved life for the 21st Century.
