A man is looking to get rid of some “used” metal cleavers that feature swastikas on the sides of the blades.

Jim Docherty, from Glasgow, Scotland, is seeking £100 for the item that he says appears to feature “German emblems on the blades.”

The Nazi metal cleavers have been described by Jim as suitable to go on display in the home or a “man cave”.

Jim listed the two 40-centimetre long blades on Facebook Marketplace on October 24, reported the Daily Record.

The Scot claims to not know the history of the items but claims he traded for them quite recently.

The listing on Facebook reads: "Pair of old cleavers, make nice wall hangers ideal for a man cave or display.

"There are what appears to be German emblems on the blades, they are 40cm over all the blades are 22cm x 10cm, very heavy steel.

I don't know any history with them. I traded them for something else recently, inspection welcome."

Jim’s item is still up on the Facebook Marketplace but currently has no likes, comments or shares as he posted to a local selling group.

There are no laws prohibiting the sale of laws of Nazi memorabilia in the UK but there are strict laws in other parts of Europe.

Nazi related items are banned in Germany, and these include any stamps, coins and literature.

Even some auction sites have put policies in place to stop Nazi related items being sold, including eBay.

The site prohibits any Nazi-themed items made after 1933 that feature swastikas.

They have also banned any reproduced items featuring the same.

In 2020, Amazon was forced into banning most editions of Adolph Hitler’s books and other books by Nazi authors.

Amazon made the decision following campaigns from Holocaust charities.

Speaking at the time, a spokesperson for Amazon said: “As a bookseller, we provide customers with access to a variety of viewpoints, including titles that serve an important educational role in understanding and preventing antisemitism. All retailers make decisions about what selection they choose to offer and we do not take selection decisions lightly.”
