Rasp Cleaver Update by Logan-Pearce Rasp Cleaver Update by Logan-Pearce
A little update on my Rasp Cleaver. I'm a bit sad that my picture didn't come out as well as it should have, but I snapped a few of this one before sending it on its merry little way. I really should have glanced through the photos before shipping it, but I was in a rush. >.<

However! The main update is that I moved my stamp to the butt of the handle. I also sharpened it all the way down the blade rather than giving it a choil like I normally do. Since it's made for cleaving, it didn't really need one.

I will also be coming out with a second version of this style. I like the osage orange for it's strength, but I'll be adding another option to this one later on. When that time comes, I promise I'll do a better job of photographing it. ;)

This is a very successful photo of this knife. Good lighting showing the textures and patterns. Making this knife from a rasp is clever in concept, but this piece also celebrated the inherent pattern of the rasp repurposed. You have successfully transformed one useful object into another while keeping its visual qualities, therefore leaving the history of the object intact. Very interesting indeed. The organic yellow ochre handle hue stands out nicely on the grey denim background. The last note, is the shine of the tip of the blade that is mirrored in the opposite corner of the composition. Bravo.
What do you think?

I've always been curious about these. Does it have a chisel bevel or a dual bevel? Was it annealed for forging or was it simply shaped little by little and cooled repeatedly to avoid ruining the temper?

Dual bevel. I always anneal them for forging, I mean realistically, you wouldn't have to if you are getting it to critical temperature for forging. It's going to move no matter how hard it is in that state. However, annealing it seems to relieve some of the stress and possible cracks/fractures that might occur. Usually those only happen to me when I'm forging at a low temperature and that are usually hairline fractures in the middle of the blade. The temper is the last thing you do to a knife. All of my profiling and grinding is complete before I harden and temper. I make sure to go up to around 400-600 grit, that way if the scale does occur while hardening, then I can easily get it off with 320 grit without creating a lot of heat. A majority of the time I'm also doing it by hand, so there is literally no heat being created. Then I temper and sharpen. That way I don't mess anything up. Takes more time, but it is worth it.

I do have the utmost admiration for metal works, specially those who make knifes ans swords.
I wish I'd live in a house with open space so that I could try this work.
Love that knife, I'm sure your client will too.

Those giant spiked green balls that fall from trees and knock people unconscious? Also wow, that's some great bladework there. I love how the filed down rasp teeth give it a scaled look. Carbon steel or tungsten?

Naw, it's the rasp. The light was shining on it from the direction that I took the picture. It is completely cleared of all the rasp/file, unlike the blade. I wanted that to be as clean as possible for the stamp.

Ever considered making this with two or three other matching "kitchen style" blades? Maybe cleaver, santoku or chefs blade, boning/utility blade, and paring knife? Would be a sharp looking set...

I've considered it. I just don't want to do them all out of carbon steel. I mean I know there are people that take care of their knives while/after cooking and using them, its just that I hate the thought of it rusting on them. I would like to put a patina on whatever style I did, but for a rasp it would kind of throw it off, if you know what I mean.

I agree. I also think that someone that would purchase high-end carbon steel kitchen knives would hopefully be someone that would take care of them properly...
