meat cleaver



Made this today.
Was going to be electro etched but
still have to get my head around
how to do it cleanly.
Oh and not that you can see it but
the cutting edge is made from an old file
and the main body is mild steel.
Red gum handle.
And #2 abit bigger.
The smaller one has the better feeling handle.

More casting fun.
I`m using very fine silica on
the foam to get the best finish i can
get so i can use this method at work.
Fired up the furnace at 10:39
Poured at 10:51.

And this is how it turned out.
Heres the first lost foam casting
i`ve done in years.
Didn`t set up the tripod so i didn`t
get the pour.
Next time.
