Cleaver Razor WIP


Sam Salvati

Recommended Posts

Got the bug to get something done today, got in the shop and christened my Chuck Robinson anvil with it's first hammering, I grabbed some 1095 and forged out a sort of cleaver. I found my Satanite in the move of all my stuff out of the garage so we could get a slab and footer poured so I decided to try my hand at a hamon on it. IT WORKED! Quenched in Park's, it got a bit more forward curve in the process and the hamon is very nice! It is in the oven tempering now. I can probably say it's the sharpest edge I have put on any blade, and it has VERY fine edge geometry, very scary! Going to do a base of leather and parachord wrap over that, not sure on black or deep red or some camo type stuff.

I saw this on some of the other forums you go to and was wondering if you were gonna let us see it here, too :P. Personally, I think you should wrap it in leather, but if you're gonna do leather base/paracord wrap, then go with the camo. Looks wicked, Sam! Let me know if you want a sheath for it one of these days--as long as you don't mind me testing it on a few desert plants while it's here ;)

Here is pictures, I went with the camo type. I think I still need to trim up the leather a bit:

Oh the zombies that would cleave! I would have to agree on the leather--probably trim it to the paracord--but the wrap looks nice and even, so great job there! That hamon is pretty sweet, as well. Can I make a sheath for it now? :P

 

Seriously, though, that might do better with an open-sided wood sheath than with a leather one.

I would still make a leather one if you sent it to me :D

P.S. Chopping pics required!

Thanks guys :)

 

Jared, it's got a bit of thickness taper, POB is about 1 1/2" in front of the handle.

 

Noah, I am still debating on trimming the leather for now, atleast at the butt of the handle where it hands the rather rough looking knot. I have tho think up a sheath now, this thing is too scary to leave around open! I like the idea of an open backed wood sheath. I might have a project to send your way for some leather work :D

Brutal!

 

Looks a bit like Gil Hibben's new Rambo knife. http://www.hibbenknives.com/JRDev.htm

The hamon looks like it's gonna turn out really nice Sam.

I forwarded a picture of this to a buddy of mine back in Illinois, and this was his response:

 

"Awesome...that thing might even shave Chuck Norris's beard, hehe"

 

I thought it was amusing enough to warrant posting up for you :P

This is a very rustic knife I might finish it a little more if I was making one, but the design is just so cool I love this knife.
