Custom handmade Damascus cleaver with leather sheath, stainless pins and beautiful exotic spalted hornbeam wood handle

The Damscus is made with 1095 and 15n20. The billet is forged to the right width and thickness, and the tang is drawn out and shaped. After annealing, the blank is profiled and soaked in vinegar over night so the scale can be wire brushed off easily. The bevel is rough ground and then the blade is heat treated. After heat treat the blade is thinned, refined and polished. The blade is etched to reveal the pattern. The handle is made by splitting a single piece of exotic wood to make a matching set of scales, the pieces are then thinned in the mill to the right thickness, and sanded to shape. They are then hand sanded and buffed. Stainless pins are made from round tube, turned to the right diameter and shaped at the ends. The handle and the pins are then polished and oiled before the blade is sharpened ready for use.
