This is an outstanding cleaver in a very handy size that will more than fill any chef's need without weighing you down. It was made by the Chicago Cutlery Co. Back in the 1970's and -80's but has NEVER been used, merely stored for decades, found here in pristine condition--quite a rarity in that respect.It has the Chicago brand stamped into its handle, along with PC-1, its model number. Regardless of its makers marks it's a super-fine piece that will thrill ANY chef or butcher. Made with a blade measuring 7" by 4.25" (it's 11.75 long overall) and weighing in at 16.7 ounces, it is all that most chefs will ever need for any kitchen's toughest chopping jobs.
Heavy enough to joint a big legbone, and deft enough to hack a chicken into its respective 8 parts 9 if you count the head! , it comes with a HEFTY carbon steel blade and a thick grip made from beautiful walnut, warm to the touch and as comfortable to use as it is beautiful to look at. If you've only used stainless steel knives until now, you will find a refreshing experience of oustanding performance in using a fine vintage carbon steel blade such as this. Easier to hone to a razor's edge and easier still to keep it that way, carbon blades require the user to keep them dry to prevent rusting, but this minor inconvenience is more than offset by the superior performance provided. Whether you're an amateur or professional chef, you know how important the finest cutlery is to your state of mind while cooking.And it's never too early to find the perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for loved one!
