It's over 100 years old. This appears to be the original leather sheath based on the fact that i found the cleaver in this sheath at one of my grandpa's houses in Trucksville, Pennsylvania.
It's legible enough to see McArthur Wirth & Co. Notice In capital letters it says "SECOND" and you can see a blood stain on the leather inside. How it looks is how I acquired it and pictures show condition. It's a solid specimen to display or could be refurbished for actual use.
