Every so often you just have to make something for your self.  This one came out of a "Serbian" cleaver project.  The cleaver went off to it's new owner (and he's happy with it.  I hated it.)  I had no luck HT'ing this stuff, it just turned into a potato chip, so I left them as found (pretty hard) and cut them with an angle grinder and ground them carefully.  I'm waiting on some parts, so I decided to finish up some quick stuff.

Steel "?" 1095 at a guess

Handle: Stabilized black locust burl 

Very light very sharp.

I vaguely remember the cleaver project.  What is the steel again? Drag saw blade?  Anyway, I like it.  Nice profile, and the burl is nifty.  Being locust I bet you could drive nails with it.

2 man buck saw, or a crosscut saw.  I found one in the basement when we moved in 15 years ago.  Good steel for scrapers and such.  We are in logging country and old tools like this are still pretty common, the woods around our house are full of cedar stumps with springboard cuts in them.

This is the Serb I made, pretty silly, but the owner loves itIMG_2218 (Medium).JPG
