Antique Rusty Cleaver Restoration

  • Published on Jan 19, 2019
  • Paid two bucks at a local flea market for this old, rusty cleaver. It did not look like much and hat a lot of rust pitting on one side, the handle was ruined and had severe blow marks on the spine. The seller seemed surprised I took it.
    As you can see in the video, as soon as I took the first layer of rust out, the makers mark became visible. It is made by an old German company named DANKRE, that specialized in kitchen cutlery.
    After all the rust was removed, it became visible that the cleaver was made from two different types of steel, one hard for the cutting edge and one softer for the main body and spine, so it can better take shocks.
    From this I get this was a good quality tool that deserves to be restored.

      I'm by no means a blacksmithing expert, but I have a hunch that it is not going to be very good for its purpose without having it annealed, quenched and tempered. There would have been no need if he'd kept the original shape. I think.

    is that still considered full tang because it goes all the way to the end? or is it not a real full tang because it does not take up the whole width of the handle? also very satisfying video to watch thanks
