Antique Rusty Cleaver Restoration

Paid two bucks at a local flea market for this old, rusty cleaver. It did not look like much and hat a lot of rust pitting on one side, the handle was ruined and had severe blow marks on the spine. The seller seemed surprised I took it.

As you can see in the video, as soon as I took the first layer of rust out, the makers mark became visible. It is made by an old German company named DANKRE, that specialized in kitchen cutlery.

After all the rust was removed, it became visible that the cleaver was made from two different types of steel, one hard for the cutting edge and one softer for the main body and spine, so it can better take shocks.

From this I get this was a good quality tool that deserves to be restored.

Restoring rusty old pocket knife found from fleamarket - Knife restoration

I will restore this rusty 0.5€ pocket knife back it's former glory. I found it from a flea market. The knife is very rusty but there is no major damage besides the pitting from the rust. I hope it's not rusted beyond restoration. I found this very interesting because before actually starting the disassembly I didn’t notice how the assembly was done and I thought it would be a nice project because the pins were hidden and I was curious how the covers of the handle were done, was it paint or something or something else. As usual, some detailed explanation of the processes can be found after the links.

After figuring out how to the knife was put together, I tried to pull those tiny metal tabs back out to get the scales off but I didn’t have a tool that could have loosened the scales. I decided to see If I could pry it apart without ruining the scales. I broke out my old trusty prying chisel. The reason I use it is that it’s hard, sharp (the edge fits to very tight gaps) and the bevel usually helps when I need to take stuff apart. I don’t really have to pry anything I only need to push and the bevel will pull the pieces apart. After scales were off I used a Dremel to grind off the pins. Then all the metal parts were put into rust remover.

After the rust was removed I sanded the pitting off from the visible parts. No need to remove material from hidden parts if the pitting doesn’t affect the functionality of the item. For the scales I used the nickel plating system to prevent it from rusting again the same was done to the plates that housed the blade and the small clip at the end of the knife. After the parts came off from the liquid I rinsed them with water to remove the liquid because it’s acidic and could start dissolving the plating after the electricity is cut. The blade was fist sanded to 400 grits. And then hardened in oil. If I hardened it first the sanding would have been much more laborious. On the other hand because I use gas burner to heat the blade up the outer surface of the blade will burn and come off so polishing before hardening is also unnecessary. After hardening the blade it was tempered in a n oven for couple of ours. This makes it less brittle.

The plastic covers on the scales were damaged and I wasn’t a big fan of the design so I decided to try adding a layer of veneer on the scales. I diluted some epoxy with thinner to allow me to apply only a very thin layer. If there was a thick layer it would come through the veneer and squeeze out under the edges. I used bunch of rubber bands to apply even-ish pressure on the veneer until the epoxy had dried. After this I sanded off the excess veneer that came over the edges.

For the assembly I made some brass rivets. I just cut pieces of brass wire and put them in a vise vertically. Then I hammered once end until it didn’t fit through the holes for the pins anymore. After the parts were assembled together, I cut the pins to wanted length and hammered the other end. It is much easier to assemble the knife if the pins have a little extra length.

Brass is not easy to cast as like the aluminium but brass needs alot of temperature to melt down we can use our home made furnaces for melting brass. IF you to make your own furnace you can see our another project video about how to make metal melting furnace:

o. Make a Simple Metal Foundry Using Empty Gas Cylinder.


o. Make a simple Metal Foundry Using Fire Bricks.


Brass Almost melts at 900°C to 940°C.Using your Homemade Furnace. While melting brass wear safety masks to avoid zinc fumes. Also Remember to wear other SAFETY stuff during casting Metal because safety is first priority.

It was totally rusted so i removed the rust with the help of DILUTE sulphuric acid. Dilution was compulsory for reaction with iron.
Remember that use the acid with complete safety and having complete information because ACIDS are not playing liquids MUST wear safety or rubber gloves and keep outside all the procedure while you are using the acid because alot of gases fumes releases while the reaction takes place.

Rusty Japanese kitchen KNIFE RESTORATION with secret wood handle

This time I'll restore this Japanese kitchen knife. I thought it would be a nice project for restoration although it was old and in rough condition. The blade is chipped and it is rusty. The handle is also badly damaged. I decided to replace the handle with secret wood handle that had kind of ice looking resin part.

I started by removing the rust with sokin the blade in vinegar overnight. then I used a belt sander to get rid of all the chipped parts of the blade. I reshaped the edge with the sander and finshed with filing by hand. I then removed pitting with coat se sand paper and polished the place up to 200 grits by hand. An angle grinder would have heated the blade up too much. Polish was finshed with metal polishing compound.

for the handle I used ash. I broke the black is 2 piece to get nice broke surface. I then drilled a hole for the tang of the knife. I used epoxy glue to attached the tang in the holes. After this I used cardboard to make a mold for casting. I made the mold quite large because it's much easier to remove material than to add some. I wrapped the mold in aluminum foil and tape to prevent leaking.

After a failed attempt I mixed some clear casting resin with slight blue hue to make it look almost like ice. Resin was poured in the mold and I let it dry. I sanded the black to wanted oval shape similar to the orginal handle. I had couple of bubbles in the resin as this was only my first attempt at resin casting. I filled the bubbles with resin and brushed the whole handle with resin to seal it up and give it a nice glossy look and deeper color.

The project turned out great and it's super sharp. Resin casting also turned out great although there are minor flaws in it. Thanks for watching. Please, if you like my content , share it with your friend as that will enable me to continue making these projects.

Restoring rusty vintage pocket knife - Knife restoration

As this weeks project, I will completely restore this rusted and damaged vintage pocket knife. The large blade has small crack and the tip is badly bent. The guy who sold this to me told it had been sitting in a box which was packed away in 60's which means this knife is at least 50 years old but probably older because is clearly wasn't new when it was put in the box. I think it's Solnigen pocket knife, because of the shield symbol and text on the blade., Usually they say Solnigen garantie

I decided to go for a a complete restoration instead of just fixing the blade and the repainting it. I disassembled the blade using a bu drilling the old pins out. being careful not to damage the parts. I removed the rust in a vinegar bath. Then I removed the old paint with paint stripper.

I nickel plated the scales to prevent then from re-rusting. I think they had nickel plating originally because the rust was only on certain spots and It definitely wasn't chrome plating. Then I re-painted the handle to a very similar style it originally was. It had this strange wine red wood imitation paint job. Luckily the airbrushing on that wasn't much better than what I can do. Instead of wine red, I used dark red lacquer which gives a bit classier look than just a regular paint but I don't think I wondered too far off from the original. The paint job turned out just stunning.

While parts were nickel plating, for almost the whole day, I sanded and cleaned up or polished the other parts. No need to polish the plates that can't be seen, it only removes material from them, so clean up was enough. I plated the parts for the whole day for two reasons, I used very low voltage to make sure I got the best result possible and I also still wanted to quick polish after that so I needed thick enough layer of nickel.

I used steel nails as new pins for the knife. I couldn't find something softer locally and I wanted to finish the video so I spent one evening just hammering the pins.I hope it will now last another 50 years until the next guy gets to restore it.

Turn A 2€ Rusty Knife Into High-End Japanese Chef's Knife

I found this big knife at a local flea market in a bucket of everything 2€ miscellaneous items. I bought it with the intent of lightly restoring it but after a close inspection I thought I was better off doing something more interesting with it since the construction was pretty bad, with un-even grinds, terrible pins and poor materials. After removing the rust I could also tell it has pretty much no historical value since it has no marking at all.

So here we go! In this video I go through the entire process of turning it into a better looking (and better performing of course) chef's knife.
The design is pretty close to a kiritsuke, but it's much bigger than most measuring 43cm (17inch) overall with 30cm (12inch) blade 6.5cm (2.6inch) wide and 2.5mm (0.1inch) thick.

I tried to develop an hamon on the blade for aesthetic reason but without success, maybe the steel is not prone to show it since the harness is definitely different from spine to edge before and after tempering. Or maybe some other reason, I didn't wanted to spend the time to figure that out anyway. I had also another issue with the heat treatment where the refractory cement expanded and got stuck in the blade holder inside the oven, I had to quench everything... Yeah... That wasn't pretty at all!

The handle is made of iroko and ebony wood, with a mild stainless steel guard and some red felt and white paper liners, the process of making the spacers is better described in this video:

Restoring rusty Japanese chef knife - Knife restoration

I found this rusty old Japanese kitchen knife while browsing ebay. What a great find for my restoration projects. It has some rust and the handle needs to be replaced. I was a little surprised how much rust there was on the tang. Luckily it still had quite a bit of steel left so I didn't have to weld a new one on. I used copper and walnut for the handle. All the pitting was sanded from the blade and it was polished to super mirror shine.

Rusty Knife Restoration

Hello folks! And again I can say it: “Flea market is very interesting place!”. There I found knife for USD $0,70. Of course, I bought this rusty knife. The first look I saw a lot of rusty metal and issue in a handle. So, I decided to disassemble it, but I broke the shank of knife and I had to weld two pieces by welding. After that I removed all rusty and start to make a handle, love this process. And after three days I get a good tool for different works in my workshop as well.

P.S. I want say You big thank's for attention for my Old bench Grinder restoration video as well want to say the grinder actually from USSR and I don't make special fake item, all items I bought at flea market for a low prices. Also, I don't color that grinder because I had not a paint and I thought both peaces also have a silver clear color and these parts doesn't need to coloring.

Thank you so much for watching my videos!!
