Had a friend ask me to fabricate a handle for his antique Foster Bros 2190 Meat Cleaver. Since my woodworking has been limited to just re-finishing this spring I was more than ready to try something new.
Used Mesquite to make the blank for the scales, Corby-Rivets to attach the scales to the cleaver. Once attached did the final grinding to fit with small sanding drum on the drill press. The scales were then seriously soaked with Watco’s clear oil and then assembled. This was the first time I’ve done this sort of woodwork. By googling knife handle making I was able to make this happen.
