So I wanted a cleaver to check things out.
Whats better way then buy destroyed blade and show it a little TLC?
When it came I thought grinding would be tough but... it is san mai... all non stainless.
I paid 40 bucks postage included, and round another 10 for handle wood.
I dont know how many hours I spent, Mind that I only have hand tools and two clamps
I also made few sheaths.
I got the wood for next to nothing, but quite nice oak.
The rest is just hands and sanding paper. I agree that those arent the best finished ones, but I found out that in a pro environment woods life aint easy
So its no point for me to really spend extra time on them, its good enough for me.
I really like the shape of this one, its so long and rounded
