KATCHOP-Ukrainian Slavic language #ukraine

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

Can anyone confirm that the above term-KATCHOP- in Ukranian refers to
someone who deals with lumber. It appears in one of Chaim Nachman
Bialik (Israel's national author) as such. I believe also in other
jewish literary sources.

I was born and raised in Ukraine, but I never heard this word before. I will ask around, out of curiosity.

Yonatan,

Can you give us the a source for this word in one of Bialik's writings in the original language he used? Was it Hebrew or Yiddish?
