3.5 Ton Leaf Spring Cleaver

250.00

This massive meat cleaver is hammered out from an old leaf spring from a large truck and weighs about the same as the average blacksmith’s hammer.  At the tip of the knife, the 3-inch wide blade is literally ½ inch thick, and tapers to 1/8 inch towards the back of the handle. It has a 5 inch long ebony handle, brass pins in the handle, and is 11 ¾ long overall. It is designed with a stand to sit on a shelf or countertop for display. The knife weighs 1247 grams (2 ¾ pounds) and.

The stand weights 587 grams (about 1 pound, 15 ounces) and is 13 1/2 inches long. The sleigh shaped stand is wire polished and coated with clear enamel. The stand is hammered from a very weather worn bar of steel, giving the metal substantial character. To see how to care for the stand, please refer to “Care of painted artwork” on the “About the Artwork” page.

The cleaver is more than heavy enough to chop through chicken with bones, pork chops or ribs. Perfect for making barbeque! The stand can be used to temporarily hold the knife before it is cleaned, keeping the countertop from getting dirty. 

This piece of “Literally Sharp Art” is a very sharp and functional kitchen utensil, and should, of course, be kept out of reach of children.  For the care and use of the knife, please see “Care and use of Literally Sharp Art” on the “About the Art” page.

WARNING: This stand (independent of the knife) should be kept out of reach of children. It is a functional sculpture and is not a toy. It has pointed tips that may cause injury if handled improperly.
