Made in the 1800s by W.M. Beatty & Sons of Chester, Pennsylvania, this tool is a pure piece of American history. W.M. Beatty & Sons was one of America’s most prolific edge toolmakers, including the manufacturing of broad axes used by shipwrights. This 9" vintage beauty had been restored by our makers and features its original turned hardwood handle. The blade includes the original maker's mark and a gorgeous patina. With over 100 years of history, this piece is a true stunner.
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.
