    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.

    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 like mine too (so long as you don't put it up against work from Marko, Stefan, Mike, etc.).

    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.
