    Depends on what is wrong with it. If just rusty a 30 minute, 50/50 white vinegar and water bath will remove most of it. You might have to scrub a little but you can repeat the bath 30 minutes at a time. Any longer and it will start eating into the metal. I know one guy who forgot about it and left a cast iron skillet in for a few months. You could crumble the skillet with your fingers.

    After any rust is removed polish and sharpen, coat with a little food grade mineral oil.

    Mine is. I had to angle it to keep the wood out of the bath and luckily it worked since it is a cheap cleaver with no way to remove the handle.

    Sir, step away from the toolbox!
    Not exactly a meat cleaver but it's shaped like one.
    (OT but I wonder how well those work as a general kitchen knife?)
