Hi everyone! My coworker gave me a very old cleaver. He said it was close to 100 years old. He wants it to be restored and fitted with
new handles. The only request he had was to leave all the
scratches and dents the cleaver. But clean up all the handle area. There are some rusty spots and lots of patina. I will be placing in to vinegar and leaving
it for 48 hours. This will remove the rust and patina. I will clean up the edge and give a new bevel
because it looks as if someone used a disk grinder to grind the bevels. Also I will redesign the shape of the handle
for a better fit in the hand.
