Thread: Rare German double head Cleaver

  1. #1

    Rare German double head Cleaver

    It's a very rare heavy beast at 4 pounds 1.85kg marked on the blade
    marked Columbus Frankfurt Germany

    enlisted the services of Bernard Levine to help and he's still working on it 2 weeks later. I'm sure he will figure it out, but if you can be my guest.

    Bernie may tell you more but there was a Columbus that imported and rebranded food service industry cutlery in I think the New York area. They had the Fosters brand at the end. I have their catalog around here some place from when I was selling that type of thing door to door at butcher shops in the early 80's.

    correct Yes another trademark was Columbus (GRAEF & SCHMIDT) 1891-1928 used by Henckels
    but He does NOT think it is the same Columbus as the early 1900's importer

    to open the image I have to right click, open in new tab?

    I think they were actually Lamson knives with a private label but I'm not 100% sure of that.
