    first time rehandle (forgie)

    My first rehandle attempt of a forgecraft 10 inch chef knife. I now know why people leave it to the professionals. It will be awhile before I try to do one of these bad boys again.

    The wood is a stabilized maidou scale (?) from jantz. I wanted to go very simple and cheap. I would have spent more money the wood if I had known how long the process was going to take. I thought I ruined the thing about 10 times. Rick's rehandle video was my tutorial, extremely helpful.

    Very nice. What tools did you use?

    Rehandling can be a very messy and ugly project, until you get that final shape. I get excited as I'm hand sanding; and rubbing the oil finish in releases the beauty of your efforts.

    Keep it up!

    I used the cheapest sander and drilled press from harbor freight and some belts from amazon. The worst part was drilling the tang, it took FOREVER and I felt like I was getting nowhere.
