This cleaver is a classic beauty. The original tapered wood handle has been given new life, and looks to be straight from the banister of an old Victorian home. Some of the antique cleavers we restore are fortunate to showcase a stamp on the blade. They often represent the maker, the blade length, or in this case, the model number from the manufacturer.
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.
