for almost every maker i cary they are epoxied all the way through... there are a couple that are only sealed at the top and a few with nothing at all
Thanks guys. I think i will make a block that is slotted for the blade and try Marko's method....If it doesn't work, there is always the squeeze them in a vise method...that worked for me last night lol.
Interesting. I've seen maybe a dozen Carters. Only the HG's have been epoxied, except for one SFGZ that had an upgraded ho wood handle on it.
It's quite possible, but the one I removed had a pretty unremarkable handle on it and it was epoxied.
An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made, in a narrow field.

I wouldn't characterize any handle I've seen from Murray as "remarkable," lol. Although, I do like my ebony handle.
My whole thought this time is "why would anyone want to save a Murray handle?"
I never try to save any, I just use a chisel, by far the best way to crack those suckers off.
I could link you to the tutorial that TK was talking about, but what I posted below was easier to find and it's a video.
