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.

    Should of made the handle glass and fucked with everyone's mind


    Okay, at least the Blade runs through the handle.
    Here are the things I don't like about the Cleaver.

    1. The Handle is Brass
    2. It looks to Tacky(like 6ix9ine's hair)
    3. Looks WAY to metallic.
    And that is about it.

    what was the point of adding a fuller? from what i understand, the purpose of a fuller in swords is to remove unnecessary material to bring down the weight. if you're going to remove such a tiny amount of metal that it practically weights the same, while adding a brass handle for no reason that adds a significant amount of superfluous weight... it makes no sense. it's like engraving something, and then painting over with thick enamel paint so that you can't even see it anymore, or putting a spoiler on the back of a jeep wrangler.
    besides that, why would you even want to remove weight from the blade of a cleaver? do you know what a cleaver is? do you know what they're for?

    No way this was ever a original clever, he just cut out a piece of metal and let it rust. I mean look at the holes that were supposed to be for the handles, the off to one side and arnt even in line with eachother.

    I have seen several of your videos now, and I keep coming back out of sheer, morbid curiosity to see how you will take a rusty tool and make it no longer rusty, yet somehow even more fucked-up. I have a few suggestions for you. First, work on developing an appreciation of proportion and symmetry. Your work is just ugly. Second, put away the fucking angle grinder and learn to hand sand. The angle grinder finish screams amateur. Third, don't be satisfied with shitty work. That fuller that you cut into the spine of the blade is crooked and uneven in width. It looks terrible. Make yourself the proper tool and do it right. Finally, don't quit halfway through the job. Your brass handle (horrible idea to begin with) still looks "lumpy," in parts, and still has sanding marks in spots. Polishing over sanding lines just looks tacky. It needs a lot more work to look halfway decent.
