DESCRIPTION

Found locally in Lancaster County Pennsylvania.

A handsome early chopping board with attached cleaver.  This is quite special, and very heavy weighs a full 41/2-lbs..  Rare to find one with such a good thick board, made of hard rock maple it is a full 1-1/2" thick and has fabulous natural color and displays beautiful wear overall.  The attached figural bird steel cleaver has a full tang (one single solid piece of steel) that is riveted through in two places along the curved oak handle. At the front the cleaver it is riveted to a rounded brass pivot.  The pivot has two reeded (or milled) edges, at one time these were able to be loosened or tightened to allow the chooper blade to pivot across the board.  Over time we expect these have become tightened and we were not able to loosen them to move the blade from left to right on the chopping board.  The blade does however move easily up and down.

Weighs 4-1/2-lbs.

Size:  

Rock Maple Base measures 11-1/4" long - 7-1/2" across and 1-1/2" thick

Cutter measures 11" long - 4-1/2" high from board surface to top edge.
