Marbles camp cleaver mod

I recently got a marbles camp cleaver and these are great value for the price but I'm not keen on their paint job.

So I decided to do a little modification
A slight remodelling of the handle and a lot of scraping to get the paint off the blade.

I initially tried to take the paint off with acetone but it didn't work, so a little bit of elbow grease later and we had a modestly clean blade.

I flamed the handle then added some linseed oil and I'm a very happy person with the result, I think you'll admit it looks wuite good.
