Upstanding Craftsmanship in Steeler Country

Made in the 1800's by WM Beatty & Sons of Chester, Pennsylvania, this tool is a pure piece of American history. WM Beatty & Sons were one of America’s most prolific edge toolmakers, including broad axes used by shipwrights. The original stick tang rounded wood handle has a comfortable feel in the hand, and the blade has been buffed to a beautiful shine finish. Built to last for another generation of use in your kitchen.

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.
