You asked: "What is a Fleischhauer? I looked in a German Dictionary and found
no such word, but "hauer" means tusks and of course "fleisch" is flesh or meat.
I found a verb, "hauen" which means to beat, but flesh beater makes to
Fleischhauer means "meat cutter". Like Fleischhaker, Fleischman & Fleischer,
these names were assumed by butchers.
