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 wouldn't call this a restoration since the final product is nothing like an original. For me it was wasted from the point he "fixed" the hole. More like a "refurbishing", but still interesting to watch.
