Due to interest, here is one of the best condition lamb splitters I've seen anywhere. It is stamped Enderes, and has a thick 12" cutting edge. The blade height is pretty big even for these I think, 2.75" high at the heel and a little over 3" at the widest. It weighs almost 2 lbs.
There are no cracks in the handle, and it is very solid. The bevel and finish is great, and was touched up by Dave a little over a year ago. I have used it with ribs and young coconut, but it is so tough you can't even tell (still sharp). You won't find a better example of this knife.
Lamb splitter $125 shipped CONUS

The next knife is a great condition sakekiri deba by Watanabe in blue#2 steel. Sakekiri are thinner than normal deba but thicker than funayuki. They have a little more blade height than deba, and are built to be real work knives. It is 240mm long, which is a great size for this type of deba designed for soft fish like salmon. I have used it on salmon and cod, and it is the real deal. It is easier to use than a 240mm deba.

Cough Cough.... I think this one still holds the title of best splitter

Perhaps. There's one on there now that's pretty ratty looking, and advertised as a 13" even though the ruler picture shows it's only 12"... :scratchhead:Not sure why you'd do that.
