He Finds Rusty Butcher’s Knife In The Trash And Restores It. When I Saw The End Result, My Jaw Dropped
I must say I don’t blame whoever threw this butcher’s knife into the trash. It was so rusty I wondered if there was any metal left underneath at all. Still, as they say, one man’s trash is another one’s treasure.
For us the entire process took only 8 minutes, but it actually took days of grinding, sanding, polishing and sharpening to give this old knife a new life. I love how the guy who restored it didn’t remove all traces of its history. He left a few dimples and pits left by rust which, along with a brand new custom handle, give it plenty of character.
