Pennsylvania Steel

From the heart of steel country comes a restored cleaver from the 1800's. Stamped with a small eagle, and Established 1806, this cleaver is a gem of the past. Faintly stamped with PA below the 1806 mark, we know this tool came from the forges of Pennsylvania. The handle features a dark char, uniquely marking the history of the piece.

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.
