    If you love the knife, but not the handle, rehandle it. Doesn't matter what it is. The scales got warped on my first swiss army knife. I had wood from my daughter's first rocking chair that broke.



    It's a $10 pocketknife, and now it's something I love to carry in my toolbox(even if it is an absurd model of SAK).

    When you have something like that for so long, you will keep it around when it is just a nub.

    Honestly, I got the first one when I was working at a seafood joint, in which we fabbed a ton of fish, literally. I have since moved on, and purchased the replacement of the fibrox. I don't think it will ever come close to seeing the abuse of its predecessor....but it's still a fav, none the less.

    I'm all for rehandling But I haven't rehandled everything in my own stash, either. Not a matter of price, though, if I really liked a knife and used it a lot, I would consider rehandling.

    I'm in the opposite position. My EDC has a crap blade, but I love the knife. If I could ever not carry it for a few weeks, maybe I'd follow up on the deal Pierre and I made, and get a great new blade put in my most used knife.

    I enjoy a scimitar with a nice handle.

    You are not truly happy not going down that road. Knowing is the answer, never knowing is not an alternative....
