Because Nothing Says “I Love You” Like a Rusty Cleaver

February 13th, 2009 by Cobwebs

CleaverArtist Elizabeth McGrath takes little cleavers,* hand-paints them, tarts them up with fake rust and glitter dust, and presents them in a pretty box. She offers a range of designs, from anatomically-correct hearts (which can be personalized!) to freaky little bats with crystal eyes. For $25, it’s a pretty good deal.

The cleavers are small–just 4″–so they could be displayed on a desk or mantel without trouble. It also occurs to me that a bunch of these would be an arresting set of ornaments for a Christmas tree. But maybe that’s just me.

*She calls them “butcher knives” all over the site. Apparently she doesn’t cook.
