Thread: A fun new woods chopper--Friedrich Dick "Italien Messer" cleaver!

    Only cleaned one duck in my life and the only thing I had was a plain old paring knife. A boning knife would have been much more convenient, but it was a domestic duck we came into possession of under rather odd circumstances and it needed to go so I used what was available.

    Amazing that a 2 lb duck can produce 12 lbs of fat, isn't it? I hunted duck once. Never again.

    Cool Butcher/cleaver. I have spend some time on their site, and need about 4 or 5 of the offerings.

    It was an Indian Runner so it was fairly lean as far as ducks go, but I can't say as I care for how it tastes so, like you, never again. I'll stick with my rabbits, thanks!

    Yeah they make some stuff no one else does! Being a horse owner, I wish I had access to their farrier's equipment and files too, but unfortunately their USA distribution only covers the culinary lines.

    Looks like something Dr Bill would use for a toothpick!.......just kidding. Pretty sweet there is a production cleaver though.
    It takes more of a man to be a gentleman.

    They make a good selection of more "typical" pro-grade cleavers as well, and they're the last production manufacturer of two-handed pork and beef splitters! I plan on adding several of those models to my line, but can special order anything they make. They don't have minimum order requirements and their US branch is only a couple states away from me. They ship same-day and it only takes 2-3 days to get to me. I'm very impressed with them both as a manufacturer and as a distributor!

    I used to bang a lot of wild ducks and geese. Make sure that you are up wind as the innerds could gag a maggot with the reek.

    I'm really glad to finally get my paws on 'em. I'd been eyeing them for a long time now because I really tend not to have as much use for a hatchet as I do a large knife, but those on the market right now don't chop "heavy" enough to justify the weight to me. Also, I love blue handles. They're "friendly," high visibility without burning your eyes like orange, and unlike orange they'll still stand out against fall leaves. Honestly I can't believe that they're able to put out a piece this large, stainless, tapered, convexed, and polished for so little money. And from Germany, no less!

    I also got a number of other models in, amongst them being their "lamb skinner" model which resembles what would happen if a Mora and George Sears' original nessmuk (not the thicker, heavier, modern interpretations) had a baby. I bet you he probably based his personal knife after this style. The grip is almost stupidly comfortable.





    I have used a "lamb skinner"as an all around skinning knife in a small commercial setting to skin beef, lamb and pork. They are fantastic for this purpose.
    As long as I am learning something, I figure I'm OK it's a decent day.

    I think I'm all set, thanks! That one Indian Runner was all the duck cleaning experience I think I need to learn that I never want to do it again.

    Thanks for confirming my thoughts on the pattern! Seems like it'd be a right handy knife for that.

    That knife looks like something out of anime. Maybe someone can do a kydex sheath for it.

    A member here contacted me about wanting to try making a leather sheath for it so I'll be sending them some cardboard templates to use. I'll be having some JRE Industries sheaths done up for the shop eventually.

    At least a fella could justify that to his wife as a kitchen tool also. Mine doesn't really care as long as I don't whine about her shoe buying, but I bet that she would challenge me on that monster !

    You can always use it to chop her shoes. "WHAT I was testing the cutting ability - Were those new?"

    Well, it'd be a good excuse to go in on half a cow with someone.

    Isn't it though? I'll be needing some more poles for some projects around the homestead, so I'll see if I can take another video of it felling. Chopping something rooted in the ground is very different from chopping something that's unsupported!
