    Old slicer / New slicer

    I just finished a re-handle on an older slicer i bought a few months ago. I did a slight re-profile since the old one was fairly wavy. Also thinned it a bit. We ended up with a 292mm slicer.

    Here's the old carbon. No maker's mark as far as i could tell


    I used Jobillo at the ends, buffalo horn ferrule in the middle, cocobolo flanking the horn, plastic spacers. it was put together from "scraps". There are two color of corbys because i was left with 1 aluminum and 2 brass from other re-handles. It was a fun project to figure out with leftover parts and pieces. nothing much to lose on an a knife that barely cost anything.





    My wife just used it for the first time (as i'm typing). It made very short order of a cantaloupe and now it's her new favorite knife
