    This old cleaver restoration.

    This was one of 2 cleavers handed down to me from my grandfather who was a butcher among many other things he did during his life like riding Harleys in the wall of death back in the early 1900's

    This cleaver is a 9" the other is a 10" that I may show later.
    Anyway the scales have been taped up for years as I used it for the last 30 years.

    My good friend Robie here at PF has come thru again with some gorgeous walnut and orange osage blanks so that I can restore this relic to its former glory. I can't thank Robie enough for providing these beautiful blanks for me to make some new scales.

    So here we go slow but sure.




    Made in Buffalo NY White 9" 1837 is the marking.

    Oldy but goody. I'm guessing 1837 is the company "White" founding date. Not sure when this cleaver was made but Im about 60 years old and Grandpa had it for at least over half his life? So its got to be close to a 100 years old?

    Some times you can get a close date by search the stamped logo. Often they companies make slight changes or change location where it is stamped at some point.
    I got lucky on grandma's butchering knife's the wood is in very good shape.

    Punctuation makes all the difference.

    Looks like maybe 1920's

    Well see if you can outdo yourself with this one!

    I got one to do if I ever get around to it.

    Be pretty happy if I can at least do as good as the boning knife scale project. Robie sent me a back up plan if things go awry.
