Thread: Pics of last weeks produce

    Pics of last weeks produce

    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

    PS: All those pins keeping blade inside are made by hand, just me sitting with little knife and carving them out of wood. All are different.

    Nice work. What did you carve the cavities with? I've done it with a knife but it takes a loooong time even for a little knife.
