Cleaver Restoration

rusty cleaver retoration

We were using an old rusty cleaver at a friend’s country house. Since I had a previous experience replacing a knife handle, I decided to restore it as a gift.

Now it looks like the cleaver used by Scout in Team Fortress 2

Thanks to Edson Medeiros for the cleaver and Bochecha for the scout reference.
