    Help to ID Vintage Wustof Cleaver time period/steel

    I rescued this old cleaver from my mom's kitchen a while back—before she had a chance the throw it out. She had this carbon Wustof meat cleaver for many decades, sharpened a bunch of times by some dude in a sharpening truck.

    The knife has sentimental value for me. Mom is cooking lighter, healthier fare these days. But when I was younger, she used the cleaver regularly, hacking chickens, pigs feet, oxtails—to cook up memorable meals.

    Spine to tip is 7.25 inches.

    QUESTION:
    Based on the logo, design, etc.—does anyone know what time period, steel, etc., this Wustof might have been from?

    You may ask our German counterparts of https://www.messerforum.net/forum.php
    Oder ask Wüsthof. They should be able to tell you.
