Have 2 of my fathers cleavers. F Dick #100 and was easy to find info on. The other. Obscure name

D. Z. Kobylanski Few hunting knives, but not much else.

Has some staining. No rust. Just spotty. No plan on using it (use the F. Dick for chopping). Just want to clean it up

European cleavers have a very limited usage in the kitchen: tradionally, they have a rounded edge, allowing them to go through bones without causing splintering.
Very different from the thin Chinese cleavers or their Japanese equivalents who are used for general purposes, just as a chef's knife or a gyuto.
