Thread: Suien SCC-01 or Sugimoto #30?

    I ended up with an F-920.

    There are some seams that are not sealed; e.g. the ferrule to the blade, and the butt-end nut to the wood. I got me some Devcon 2-ton epoxy but I'm worried that I won't be able to get a smooth finish. How do I wipe it down to get a sanitary finish for smoothness and cleanability?

    Nice , how do you like the F-920?

    As for the epoxy, perhaps a toothpick for application and automotive sandpaper wrapped around Popsicle stick for cleanup might get the smoothness you desire.

    Why sandpaper?

    sandpaper, just in case there is a couple of rough patches in the cured epoxy.

    The automotive kind of course, not the stuff you use on wood.

    It went easier than I thought. I used a 6" static mixer tip with a small orifice (1/16" or so) which made it easy to control the application. The only other real tool I used was a stainless steel ruler with a square end and a round end. The square end was used for cleaning up the seams to give a straight finish, and the round end was used to give a nice, smooth fillet to the seams. I had some paper on hand to wipe off the excess and the smudges.

    I was able to fill in the gap between the ferrule and the blade, the ferrule and the handle, and the butt-nut and the handle.
