Upstanding Craftsmanship in Upstate New York
Made in the 1800s by Foster Bros. of Fulton, NY, this piece is a glimpse into American history. Restored by our makers with a gorgeous new maple handle and four brass mosaic rivets. This nearly-14" hog splitter is a "Made in the USA" classic.

Living Americana: Practical Artifacts from the Golden Age of Steel
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.
