The recent interest in Forgecrafts has become infectious and I've picked up a couple for the BBQ table.
First was a cleaver from Tom/Sharp n Shiny, very good shape, maybe a new handle someday - but not today. It likes BBQ!
(A little out of its weight class)
2nd is a "butchers" chef knife from the bay that I'm looking for some advice on. No orange rust but some dark spots and several places where something that looks like old fry grease is on the blade and handle. How much scrubbing can I do without losing the distinctive bars? BKF and fine steel wool or dremel w polishing attachments?
