The real butcher block.

This butcher's block is the real thing, and was made specifically for the resturarant - not for meat preparation, but for decoration. Fortunately the butcher's knife is also a decorative piece and is firmly attached to the table.

I don't think these implements are so widely used in the more modern bucheries, where stainless steel and electric saws make the task far easier, quicker and more accurate.
