I do....I'm sooooo faking it. :D
Nah but what's interesting is to see how other people do it.
That looks like a great handle:thumbsup2:
It turned out great! Congrats :)
how do you get the rivets smoothed out without damaging wood? (by the way, looks great- bet you could sell 100 of those rehandled Tojiros... everyone needs one!)
Great thread. As a hobbyist wood worker I've thought about giving it a go. But only on my ****** old knives...
Interesting, I have a vintage Premier Cuttlery bull nose butcher knife, circa 1950's my dad aquired when he worked in the mines (from one of the kitchen cooks) as well as a big dirty matching steel. I have been contimplating doing a rehandle, but keep wondering if it best to leave it as is...
I say if it's old and worn down out of love and use, leave it. If it's old and gunky looking like that, refurb!
