Post Apocalyptic Chainsaw Cleaver

Man, if I had any metalworking skills whatsoever, this is the kind of thing I would try to make! Hahaha! I was just trying to picture replacing all of my kitchen tools with things like this. It’d end up looking like a torture chamber from Mad Max. That’s one way to keep people from “helping” me while I cook!

Hand formed from an old chainsaw blade with joints all welded, this dainty looking cleaver can actually be used in the kitchen. The chain is forged and hammered for strength. The handle is double wrapped in pure copper rod. The blade, made from a recycled file, tempered, sharpened and treated with food safe oil. All mig welded together to form an extremely sturdy & robust piece of culinary, carnage creating cutlery!

Whether you have an evening of zombie slaying ahead of you or the endless wastelands of the apocalypse, this is your cleaver. I kind of picture Reavers having a small weapon like this handy on Firefly, Although you could use it in your kitchen if you’d prefer as it makes an excellent sized food chopper!

Advice to First-time Line-cooks:
  • Expect to learn a lot. Whether it’s how to do something, or how not to do it. Every person you meet knows something you don’t. 
  • Have low exception, and be completely amazed. 
  • You will work when others play. When others work (or sleep), so you shall play.

  • Don’t complain.
  • Hard work pays off.
  • Always have a sani-bucket at your station.

  • Never loose your cool on the line.
  • Go yell in the walk-in if you must.
  • Invest in good shoes: Mozos for flat feet and Danskos for arched feet.
  • Then go out and buy insoles. And Aleve.
  • 2 black click-y pens, 1 black click-y Sharpie, 1 small notebook.
  • Keep an extra pair of pants and a backup coat in your bag.
  • Bring street clothes to change into after shift when the crew goes out for beers.
  • Beers after a shift are important bonding ritual. It makes the crew stronger.

  • But don’t go overboard. You gotta work Brunch tomorrow. 
  • Shut the fuck up and cook.
