    Tojiro Overhaul.

    Hey all.

    I realize alot of this will be posted in other threads. but I would like to avoid days of searching, it might be good to compile the info in one spot.

    I have a Tojiro Petty in White #2. I'm looking at taking the back of the face off to make it a "single bevel" as well as a new handle.

    I'm not sure how to get a good polish on the blade as well as handle removal/construction.

    I'll primarily be using hand tools to do the work. I figure a $30 knife is a good one to play with.

    Maybe someone has some ideas or tricks that haven't been shared.
    Or even better, materials that they might not use
    I know a few members here such as salty can achieve some very nice results re-polishing a blade.

    Cheers
    Thanks All
    Sam

    Rounding off spine as well, forcing Patina,

    I kindah want to play with a small amount of Mammoth for a spacer or Furrel as well.

    Good luck on this, kinda the way I am thinking of moving. I just am not sure if putting mammoth would be a good idea. I'm sure others can come up with something that would be better practice before you get to expensive stuff.

    Good luck. I've found it extremely difficult to make any handles with only hand tools. My recent "dabblings" have made me respect the knifemakers all that much more. I've wasted a couple good blocks already and almost drilled holes in my hands, but good luck!

    And love to watch you put holes in your hands.

    Ha Ha, I'll be able to work safely, I hope. I'm worried about botching the wood.

    Whats the best way to remove the handle/ get the apoxy to release? Simply cutting the handle away from the tang? will very hot water or steam help is loosen up?

    There is a thread here somewhere that Dave started about that.....getting the handle off is the easy part.
