Antique Meat Cleaver Restoration - RAW OUTCOME

Publicado em 20 Ago 2020
Restoration of a huge antique meat cleaver from Italy. See this 105 years old butchers tool get restored without losing its rawness.

I disassembled the shaft from the cleaver blade and welded the pin holes together. I sandblasted the back side and heated the metal to get the blade straight. Then a full annealing process at 879 degrees Celsius to reduce the hardness and internal stress in the metal of this meat cleaver. I grinded a new cutting edge in a 30-degree one side angle. After that I heat treated the metal and gained a 60-62 HCR (Rockwell hardness scale)

I did etch the cleaver on both sides and created a beautiful new handle of an old piece of hickory wood. I finish the project with a nice little laser engraving and some very cool decorations.
