When do you choose to rehandle a knife? There was some discussion in Peco's 'Fed Up' thread about rehandling Carter's and I didn't want to hijack that discussion.
But a while back I bought a Stefan handle for my Carter HG, but the handle -- though not great -- is fine, and I have held off on rehandling it. At first I thought the Carter handle was too light, but now I like the lightness and think the Stefan handle might throw off the balance that I have gotten used to. I don't want to mess with it (for now), so now my Carter rests right next to a beautiful Stefan handle in a satin bag...but an unused Stefan handle also seems like a shame.
So when do you choose to rehandle? I just sent to Dave my TKC for rehandling, but it didn't need it really. I'm also getting my daughter's knife rehandled with leftover wood. That definitely wasn't necessary.
