    Cleaver restoration

    Hi all,
    I have been asked to clean up and put a new handle on an old F.Dick meat cleaver. I have found a lot about the company but not much about the Knife itself, it looks old but in pretty good nick. I thought I would ask around here to see if anyone has an idea of it's age or value before I touch it.

    Any info on this would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Any old F.Dick items with the arrow going towards the handle they say is pre war reverse arrow. But i have seen butchers steels with a revers arrow that i think were made after the war .A butchers steel with a reverse arrow will bring about $180 and with the arrow going towards the tip about $80 I would value the cleaver to be $80-$120

    Hi, I found this old F. dick cleaver listed on Etsy as a 1940's No.98, and priced at $Aud290, so yours possibly more valuable than @trashhat; estimates.

    Old Dicks always seem to fetch a good price.

    Thank's everyone, I have returned this one to the owner with nothing more done to it than a rub with some renaisance wax. He was pleasantly suprised to find out it was worth so much more than the $5 he paid for it at a garage sale.
