Restoring a Rusty Butcher's Knife Found in the Trash Back to a Sparkly Blade is Damn Nice

By Casey Chan on at

If I saw this deeply rusted cleaver in the bin, I’d leave it exactly where it was, because I wouldn’t think there would be any way to save the thing. Luckily, the person salvaging this ruined butcher’s knife is way smarter and way more resourceful than me, because in less than three hours, he turned a destroyed knife into what looks like a brand-spanking new blade that can chop the hell out of anything.

The knife was very, very rusty with some pitting on the blade that went fairly deep. Sandpaper didn’t do a damn thing at first but after switching up his tools, the knife starts to shine like its old self in no time.
