Antique c. 1920 Miller's Cutlery Ofos Halef Slaughter Knife !This 1920's antique ground downsmall rectangular knife (ofos halef) was for kosher slaughter of poultry.
Reads "Miller's" on the brass bolster in Yiddish.
Measures 11" long it shows heavy use.
Uncleaned there is some paint residue on the blade.
Handle is tight and in nice condition.
One bolster is notched.
A nice match to the illustrated knife in the History Museum, perhaps earlier since this reads simply "Miller's" without J.D. in English.The Natural Museum of Natural History has on display a "
1920s free-standing, wood–framed oilcloth window sign from the knife shop of Russian–immigrants Joseph and David Miller in the Lower East Side of New York City uses four implements and a legend in Yiddish to advertise their commercial offerings.The sign reads "Here is Miller's / Miller's knives are the best and finest in the entire world. / They are guaranteed never to rust." The Miller shop at 25 Canal Street made ritual Jewish cutlery for the shochet (butcher) and for the mohel (circumcisionist), using extreme care in the hand fabrication of each instrument. The large rectangular knife (gasos halef) on the sign was used to slaughter cattle, the small rectangular knife (ofos halef) was for poultry; the curved implement is a circumcision clamp (mohel mashinke); and the double sided knife is a circumcision knife (mohel messer). In compliance with Jewish tradition, great emphasis is placed upon cleanliness, speed, efficiency, and the minimization of pain in the use of these for offerding!
