Vintage Carbon Steel Massive Craftsman Cleaver


This is a vintage, heavy duty, carbon steel meat cleaver by Craftsman. The blade in 8” long, and the cleaver with its beasutiful 6 1/2" wood handles is almost 14” long. The handles are secured by three large brass rivets. It weighs almost three pounds -- 2 lbs. 10oz! It was obviously made for the butcher trade, rather than home use (my Henckels is 13.7 oz.). The blade width at the spine is a serious 5 mm. thick, and at the front is 4 ¾ wide. It is incised on the blade within an oval “Guaranteed Highest Quality CRAFTSMAN Registered U.S. Pat. Off.” Here’s a photo of the big boy, and above it my comparatively puny Henckels. I hope it is apparent it was designed to do more than chop chicken. Condition: VG+.
