I picked up this old set at an estate sale in the midwest over 30 years ago and it looks exactly the same today as it did then, having been in storage all these years. As you can see the set is comprised of an old skinner's block made of very heavy-duty leather with iron fittings, plus a cleaver and 2 old knives that are, entirely still capable of doing their job and doing it very well.
None of the knives nor the cleaver have any maker's markings and because they all have the same wood on their handles (walnut, I believe) and all have copper rivets rather than the much more common brass or iron, I believe the entire set was forged by the same maker, probably some village blacksmith. They're all rock solid and tight, in excellent shape, as you can see in the photos. No way of knowing how old this set is, exactly, but it is OLD, as you can see. The larger knife is 10.75" long with a 6" blade; the smaller is 9.25" long with a 5" blade; the cleaver is 11.5" long with a 5.75" by 3-3/8 blade.
