I bought this cleaver right when Mark got them in for the first time. I don't use it a lot, maybe a few times a week. But now its really looking like crap, and I need to give it a makeover. Obviously, its going to get a new handle but what else? Should I just crap it and buy a new one? I was thinking of removing the entire lacquer coating but I remember someone on the old forum saying it ruined the knife.
I got a piece of wood similar to THIS one. And I have some ebony lying around to round it out.
