Video: If I saw this deeply rusted cleaver in the garbage, I'd leave it exactly where it was, because I wouldn't think there was any way to save the thing. Luckily, the person salvaging this ruined butcher's knife is way smarter and way more resourceful than me. 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.

Video: At the start, the knife looks to be in pretty bad shape. It's spotted and stained and totally rusted. But with a little tender love and care, the steel is shining and sharp and beautiful once again. The high carbon steel used in Japanese chef knives can be susceptible to rust when used with things like fresh fruit, but in this case the rust didn't settle in too deeply on the steel.
