Hog splitter Cleaver

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, haven't posted on here in awhile.  Here is a video I finished recently.  The style is after British Elwell hogsplitter cleavers.  The steel used is from a thick section of a Ford leaf spring.

I do like the way you use tooling under the hammer.  Just like the old industrial smiths, but smaller scale.  And you do good video work too!
