I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

The inspiration for this cleaver was an old cleaver my grandpa had in his kitchen that was his grandpa's. It was most likely made by a country blacksmith. The spine was dented and banged up from being hammered through pig and cow carcasses, the handle was chipped and worn but it was still usable and razor sharp. I don't know what happened to that cleaver but we decided to make one in homage to that old cleaver. We wanted it to look like a country blacksmith made it and to have small imperfections because we thought it would add to the over all look. The blade is 5160, The handle is Mexican desert ironwood.
