I made a meat cleaver!
This is a Christmas gift to my chef brother and as such I’m calling it ‘The Jeffrey.’ The #integralbolster
(the portion in front of the handle but before the blade) is MADE FROM A CHUNK OF SHRAPNEL that came out of my grandfathers leg during World War II...
After watching a bit too much @forgedinfire
and then accidentally happening across @alecsteele
, (Alec, if you see this I learned basically everything I tried to do from you) I went ahead and built a propane forge, gutted a 26 foot trailer and set it up with a bunch of grinding belts and wheels and cutting and heating tools and this cleaver is my second ever creation. So I guess I’m a blacksmith now. #nikond5600 #cleaver #handmade #1095 #meat #forgedinfire #forged #propane #homemadeknife #handmadeknife #customknife #customblades
