Declare Yourself Master of the Pig Roast Forever and Always
Made in the 1800's by Foster Bros. of Fulton, NY, this piece is a glimpse in to American history. Made for industrial use by butchers, this tool was used for cutting whole hogs for butchering. Incredibly sharp and capable of slicing through anything. Restored by our makers with the original stick tang and wood handle. This piece is a one of a kind treasure of American tool history.  


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 tools come from an era where extraordinary steel was extremely cheap. To make cleavers of this mass of quality steel today would be prohibitively expensive to produce. 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 new life in the 21st Century.
