Knife 35 – Serbian Cleaver
Made from 3/16” 1084
Even though I did very little to this before heat treating, I still wound up with a small warp. I clamped two pieces of metal to provide a very slight over bend and tempered. It came back straight.
Because of its size, it took some hand sanding. I used the grinder with an attachment for hook and loop pads (like Knife 30 – Cleaver). It helped a little, but it tore up disk pretty quick. Projects like this make you want a surface grinder.
Knife 30 – Cleaver also has a good definition of different cleaver geometry.
The blade is 7″
Overall length is 13″
Hand rubbed oil finish
