    Nah but what's interesting is to see how other people do it.

    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!)
    The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!

    It has never really been a concern. I do the rough shaping with a belt sander, then everything else by hand. On the flat surfaces, like the face of the handle I use a rubber backed sander that fits in your palm, if I an not using that I use variable pressure around the rivets with my fingers to get even sanding. This wood was stabilized so it is a little harder and has a larger margin of error where sanding is concerned.

    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!
