12 inch carbon steel blade. Very heavy and very sharp.
Handle appears to be oak. Handle does not appear to be the original, blade seems much older.
No identfying makers marks anywhere on the blade.
Some old Dexters I have seen had the Dexter logo only on the handle

Talk about a workhorse!

Could be a large number of old manufactures. Lamson, Goodwin, Dexter, Old Hickory to name a few. Maker's mark could be worn off. It could have also been a blank that got a handle slapped on it from a flea market stall.

I think it is a dexter as i look at the bolster handle fit. It does not look like it has been sharpened much.

Yes it looks like a Dexter. I checked out one that I had tucked away and it looks the same. Mine has "Dexter" engraved in the original wood handle. Yours looks like the blade has not been sharpened very often. Enjoy It!

Hey thanks to all. Yes my first thought was its an old Dexter. What you can't see because I did not post a photo of the other side, isThe rivets still have the slots showing. That is why I think the handle was replaced. When the person replaced the handle, they apparently did not have long enough rivets, so they just put in what they had. I thought about grinding the slots off the rivet heads myself, but why bother? It would cause the rivet heads to be below the surface of the handle.
I don't use this big old blade very much, It has a lot of life left in it. Sometimes if we get a big watermelon, or an eggplant, or large squash, I just bring out the trust old decimator!
