I made a little progress on my Village Blacksmith cleaver. This thing started off as a solid ball of rust, with the spine severely mushroomed from hammering.
I had to accept that I wasn't going to get rid of every single pit, nor get it perfectly flat, as I wouldn't have a cleaver left. This is the result of about 3 hours with a 4" stationary belt sander, 5" angle grinder with flap disks, bastard files and sanding blocks. I finally have 95% of the waviness out of the edge. I just need to figger out what my kid did with my 180 grit Norton stone.
