    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.

    It's a Village Blacksmith? Nice! They're my most requested company, next to Forgecraft. You're in for a treat.

    LOL - that was funny. Black ash burl ferrule and box elder burl handle. This thing took a beautiful edge and almost made for a trip to the stitchery while I was wiping it down.

    Wow - time to move this thread to the front -

    14" meat fork of unknown origin - it was in rough shape but all better now!




    And a NOS Regent Sheffield 10" chef - amazing lightness @ 6.8oz and the blade took an awesome patina.

    Is it my imagination, or are your handles getting nicer and nicer?
