From Cleavers to Ice Skates to the National Hockey League
The history of small business in America is full of colorful, creative characters like Leonard and Ichabod Jewett White, who founded the L&I J White Company in 1837. After opening a small tool shop in Michigan, the brothers moved their business to Buffalo, which was a national center of innovation in its heyday as “The City of Lights.” Among other things, the brothers received a patent for a process that revolutionized the way ice skates were fastened together. Ironically, the L&I J White Company was located at the site where the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres Arena stands today.
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.
