    Thanks but I can't take the credit, the knife's owner sent them to me, he's got the good taste.

    Glestain gyuto in Butch Harner's "maroon mycarta" with stainless pins. I think it's now well suited for it's role which is life on a Pacific island in a commercial kitchen.

    Not my best work (some glue lines can be seen in person) but considering how bad this knife tried to kick my ass I'm actually happy that it came out as good as it did. I learned a lot on this rehandle, the most important thing being that I don't ever want to do another Glestain again.

    those angles complicate things, do they?

    No doubt, I would be curious to know how you perfectly fit the scale to the rounded bolster at the bottom too. By hand? My wife has a knife that she wants done, but I am hesitant because of the rounded bolster to tang fit.

    Yeah guys this one sucked for the rounded parts but also for what you can't see and that's the rounded parts on the insides at the back plus the bolsters were uneven and they're angled making the top shorter than the bottom oh and also there was rust damage on the tang that I had to sand out. To fit the scales on the rounded parts I had to had file and sand and fit over and over and over and over and over again and still I couldn't get it perfect. This thing was a nightmare.

    That's why I prefer making wooden sticks, much easier
