As far as the handle goes, Are you wanting to put new scales on it or just restore the handle as is?

One way to save that handle, you could use Minwax wood hardener.
But it would give it an amber tone which in my opinion would look good.
Just paint it on quickly and repeatedly until you see it building up on the surface.
Let it set for a day and fine sand it smooth.
And then, True Oil to finish.
If you don't like the answer, ask a different question.

Did this project ever get done ??  :dunno:

Old cleavers are great. Picked this one up with intentions to fix up but just have cleaned up the edge and keep using. Mostly I butcher my ducks with it but is very handy for small game, cabbage and every other excuse I can find.  Looking forward to the rehap project when done Terry and ks.

Relax,

You'll live longer!
