    Here is my collection of antique choppers. Some older and rarer than others, but a nice assortment for sure. The pieces that I really enjoy are the two large S-choppers at the top. Those were usually attached to a long pole and used to chop pumpkins and larger foods. The scoop in between those is actually for woodworking.....whoops. Then there is the piece toward the middle that has its on blade cover carved out of wood. The S-chopper at the bottom middle is a real nice rare one. Those are hard to come by. All the way to the right is a strange shaped thing that could be a grafting froe. Lastly is the straight blade chopper all the way to the right. I am always looking for new pieces to add to the collection that have unique shaped blades. Usually the crazier shape the blade is, the more it costs. Thanks for looking!

      Love it. I have some fascination with older kitchen utensils. I don't have as old as those but now if I see a S-chopper at least I'll know what it is.

      Ho2cultcha....the s choppers would have been at the end of a long pole like an ice scraper. Then the user would just stab or chop down at pumpkins and food like that.

      Hotairfan, took me a few years so far. The ones with the unique designs are usually more expensive. Those are harder to find than the traditional shaped ones. Any time I see one that looks different I pick it up. Thanks everyone for chiming in!!!
