The Butcher from Diderot’s Encyclopedia 1763

We have added some new knives to our product line and I thought I would find some nice knife pictures.  This one has some great detail, I especially like the knife block on the belt.

Detail: butcher, workshop, knife, cleaver, knife block, axe, mallet, bellows, table, scraper, meat hook, belt, knife sharpener, wooden shoes, pulley, cow, sheep, bucket

  1. Meat cutters in today’s slaughter plants carry their knives and sharpening steel in a belted scabbard that looks very much like the one in the detail engraving. Some things just can’t be improved on in 250 years!
