Restored Treasure

This rugged and classic, albeit anonymous, beauty has been restored by our knife makers to feature a new, handsome desert ironwood handle complete with brass mosaic rivets. The blade has sadly lost its maker's stamp, but this antique cleaver bears all the classic markings of rock-solid butcher's tools from the golden age of American manufacturing.


Living Americana: Practical Artifacts from the Golden Age of Steel

At New West KnifeWorks, we value the ancient tradition of knife-making even as we forge new paths of innovative glory. 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 in the 21st Century.
