Excellent! You make a fine interior decorator! I see many many goodies in the group! What size is that Monster Meat Cleaver, and who made it?

The cleaver is marked Fosters Bros #10.  The cutting edge is 10 inches long.  It weighs about 4 pounds.  I can imagine the size of the arm of the person charged with using this meat cutter.

That’s just a small pocket claver for Paul Bunyan
If all else fails use a bigger hammer…

Nice display. Where did you get the ice saw; off some snowbird from a Northern border state?

I guess you are looking at the two long saws with one handle.  They are two man wood saws.  Each has a handle missing on one end.  There is a special handle wing nut connector that is used to hold the handle to the blade.  I recently found one but haven't had time to make a handle.

The farm I was raised on was in upstate NY.  There was an ice house on the property and some of the old diaries found in the house described the ice business of the 1880's there.  That was an interesting place.  The same family lived there for over 100 years and when my father bought it every room and every barn was crammed with stuff.  A lot of it was sold and too much was unwittingly thrown out or allowed to decay.  It is from there that some of my tool collection started.

Herbie:

The thin two-man saw is an ice saw.  I grew up in Schenectady County. Where was your farm?

I would have thought it was a whip saw, but you're looking at the teeth, aren't you?  Those do look like ice saw teeth.

 I've never seen a two man ice saw; the ones I'm familiar with have a tiller handle like a pit saw.

Ice saw!  Okay, I didn't know.  I've got a bunch of ice tongs that need display.  I'll have to move that saw to the right place.  The farm was in Guilford, Chenango County.  The farm buildings are not there any more.

I don't think either of the saws that I see are an ice saw, just my opinion from what I can see.

Have to agree with lewill2 those both appear to be wood saws

I agree as well.  The slender one looks like a whip saw, and it has raker teeth, which pretty much cinch it.  The ice saws I've seen look like pit saws with the tillers and all.
