Ancient Meat Cleaver Restoration

  • Published on Sep 8, 2018
  • I took this butcher's knife from my junkyard but i don't exactly know the name of this kind of butcher's knife anyways this old and rusty knife found me something new to restore so i decided to restore it.
    I used patch tool in photoshop for thumbnail to show it more rusty.
    By the way this butcher knife or cleaver looks like a pirate's sword :D so i found it something interesting to restore. Anyways i did restoration just for fun because the effort and time, i put on this restoration is much worthy and we even can buy such a new cleaver for less amount. So guyz watch the video just for satisfaction and for FUN i am deeply thankful to all of you who gives a thumbs up and appreciates us in comment box because your appreciation encourages us to make something new. Watching these restoring projects are good but also visit our channel to watch some DIY projects.
    Ancient Meat Cleaver Restoration
    I made the Brass handle for this cleaver and that was heavy but not too much i think brass handle would work good. As i said i just made this restoration video for fun so i think the brass handle perfectly suits on this cleaver and i like the brass shine as well.
    Thanks a lot for watching, I hope you liked the video!

    Brass is not easy to cast as like the aluminium but brass needs alot of temperature to melt down we can use our home made furnaces for melting brass. IF you to make your own furnace you can see our another project video about how to make metal melting furnace:
    o. Make a Simple Metal Foundry Using Empty Gas Cylinder.
    o. Make a simple Metal Foundry Using Fire Bricks.

    Brass Almost melts at 900°C to 940°C.Using your Homemade Furnace. While melting brass wear safety masks to avoid zinc fumes. Also Remember to wear other SAFETY stuff during casting Metal because safety is first priority.
    It was totally rusted so i removed the rust with the help of DILUTE sulphuric acid. Dilution was compulsory for reaction with iron.
    Remember that use the acid with complete safety and having complete information because ACIDS are not playing liquids MUST wear safety or rubber gloves and keep outside all the procedure while you are using the acid because alot of gases fumes releases while the reaction takes place.

      9:14 next time try moving the mic further away from the grinder, that way you won't get that scratchy sound, or even turn down the gain on the mic.

    I like brass but I would use it as an accent with the main handle being some beautiful black walnut. But still it was a good job

    You think instead of brass, you could have used shit and just smeared it all over the knife? Upgrade.

    That cleaver is so amazing you should put it in a wooden box with rocks inside and drop it in the ocean. Hopefully it'll be so ancient it'll disappear forever, where no man's eyes can ever see it's delicate features.
