    Anyone rehandle a Carter with Riveted Handle?

    I've got some Carters with the black riveted handles that have been on my list of knives to pretty up with a new handle.

    I seem to recall seeing some that Butch did for Stefan, but can't find the pics now. Has anyone else had theirs rehandled?

    The simple way would be to add a spacer the length of the handle similar to the way Carter does his newer Wa handles, but i'd prefer the look of keeping the handle from a single piece of wood.

    Pictures or ideally an old WIP thread would be great to see, before i take the plunge and do it myself or send to it someone......

    No WIP, but here are pics of Butch's rehandle:

    Keep what you love and get rid of what you don’t.

    There is something about the 2 rivet design - I think tang is short - that drives the hidden tang rehandle.
    Older and wider..
