What're you waiting for? This is a superb piece and a MUST HAVE for the serious butcher, chef or collector alike.
If you hunt, raise livestock or just prefer to butcher your own meats, you'll find NONE finer in this highly desirable #6 size. This outstanding antique meat cleaver was made in Buffalo, NY by the L. White company, founded in 1837 and is marked as such inside the company's football-shaped logo.
This maker produced some of the very finest professional grade cutlery ever seen in this country and their fine cleavers are highly prized among collectors AND by users with very good reason: the quality is unmatched. This cleaver is large enough and heavy-duty enough to dispatch just about anything the modern chef may demand from it. It not only looks beautiful but feels beautifully balanced in the hand, which will be, for most users, a most pleasant surprise.
Like all carbon steel cutlery, it will rust if not properly kept dry, but takes a RAZOR edge like no other, and outperforms stainless steel in almost every way; you must wipe it down after each use but its beauty and superior performance are worth it. It is RAZOR sharp now, having been professionally maintained for decades by its previous owner, a local chef here in Southern California, who traded it in to us when he recently retired. Condition is superb--this piece is rock solid and will stay that way for generations if you occasionally give it a thin layer of mineral oil on blade and handles. As you can see it has developed a wonderful patina over its blade and over its gracefully shaped cherrywood handles, brass-riveted over a full and tapered tang, and most crucially bolstered firmly into place with an iron ferrule that also keeps food debris out of its handles.Without a doubt, it will provide its lucky new user with heirloom quality for use, for display and for posterity. It weighs an impressive 21.5 ounces and measures 12" long with 6.25" by 4.25 blade, but in terms of beauty and utility, comes up HUGE by any measure! Don't pass up an opportunity to truly elevate the quality of cutlery in YOUR kitchen, amateur or professional.
