John R. Nichols came to America in 1848. He had worked in a cutlery factory in Sheffield, England since childhood. Two of his sons, Walter E. Nichols and John Henry Nichols, went on to start Nichols Bros. in 1892 in Greenfield, Mass., focusing on butcher's cutlery like this 14" piece of American craftsmanship.
The antique Nichols cleaver features the original blade stamp with the maker's mark blade stamp and the original turned handle.
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.
