New Project, new technique! I used a new technique again in the restoration of this rusty cleaver. With iron (III) chloride and coffee I blackened the rusty cleaver. I made the new handle out of ebony, which now revealed a completely black cleaver. Restoring the old cleaver required me to drill, sand, file, remove rust and glue. I found this old hand tool again on a flea market website and really wanted to have it.
▬ What did I do ?! ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
The cleaver was extremely rusty, so I used rust remover and a screwdriver to remove the rough rust. I used electrolysis to remove the remaining rust. I then used an angle grinder to make the rough contour and on the belt grinder. I ground down the sides until no pitting was visible, up to a grit of 1000. Using a jig and a grindstone, I resharpened the cleaver. Now I dipped the old hand tool in iron (III) chloride and coffee. The new wooden handle is made of ebony. Now all that was left was to assemble everything and the black cleaver was ready.
