Very good job on the rebuild. Nice! I would have really liked to have seen you in the knife swap!

Nice restoration G’CN. What became of it’s future? Is it in use or on show?

I can relate as I made an attempt to restore a cleaver and didn’t have the heart to give it the chop.

Beautiful work. What tasks does it perform in your shop?

Earned another one… Slap it in a box and make it a display in the house… It’ll earn more comments there…

It was not looking good when it arrived but this is a quality item, I worked in a meat market in the early 1970’s and we had them.
