More About this Item


Description: 200 "Shechita" (slaughter) knives for poultry and cattle. Various manufacturers, [USA, Poland, Germany, Hungary and Israel, second half of 19th through mid-20th century]. An extensive collection which includes slaughter knives made by various manufacturers: J. / J. & D. Miller, Kraut & Dohnal (New-York and Chicago), Likker (Baia Mare), E. G. Grunewald Wolf (Germany), Schulek (Hungary), Gerlach (Poland), Dov Lublinsky (Tel-Aviv), and other manufacturers. The knives in this collection were manufactured at different times; they vary in size, material of handles (wood, bone, metal, plastic and more), and quality of steel; and are placed in different cases. The leading manufacturers of slaughter knives operated in Germany, Poland, Hungary as well as in the USA and Israel, and the knives they made were used by most Jewish congregations in Europe and even out of Europe (members of Lublinsky family, manufacturers of knives, tell that Polish knives reached Casablanca with "Joint" emissaries, and from there found a way to Eretz Israel). Some of the knives are accompanied by notes or labels added by the owners of this collection, and mark the origin of the knives. Among them, three knives which belonged to the Shochet R. Gonik Avraham the Shochet, of Boto?ani, Romania; a knife which belonged to the Shochet Michal Wilnitz from London (1890); a knife dated 1800, and more. The collection includes: · 61 slaughter knives for poultry (36 with a case and 25 with no case), · 87 slaughter knives for "Behema Gasa" (63 with case and 24 with no case). · 46 slaughter knives for "Behame Daka" (10 with case and 36 with no case). · 6 knives placed together in a wooden box (two for "Behema Gasa", two for Behame Daka", and two for poultry). The origin of these knives is the collection of Dov Lublinsky - a member of the knife manufacturers' family that founded the family workshop for sharpening and manufacturing knives prior to World War I. Over many years Lublinsky family members used to exchange new slaughter knives for old ones which were rusted and of no use. This is how the extensive an impressive collection was gathered. The collection represents varied origins, manufacturers and production periods of slaughter knives. Size and condition vary. Some rusted. Some knives with no scales, or with damages to handle. Some boxes are damaged.
