The Bull Chopper
The Bull Chopper
This is a medium sized meat cleaver, with a 5 ½ inch long ebony handle, brass pins in the handle, and is 10 ½ overall length. It is designed with a stand to sit on a shelf or countertop for display. The knife weighs 580 grams (about 20 ounces or 1 ⅓ pounds) and is made from an old leaf spring. The stand is hammered from a single bar of steel, painted (enamel paint) dark grey/black with blue highlights.
The cleaver is heavy enough to chop through chicken with bones, pork chops or ribs. The stand can be used to temporarily hold the knife before it is cleaned, keeping the countertop from getting dirty.
The stand weights 720 grams (about 1 pound, 9 ounces) and is 11 inches tall. It is 11 by 6 inches wide at the base. The stand is quite asymmetric in its shape. This piece of artwork is for somebody who likes organic shapes. To see how to care for the stand, please refer to “Care of painted artwork” on the “About the Artwork” page.
