You will need to adjust the opening accordingly for the tang of your knife. Please make sure to remove your handle first and measure it before considering buying it. To fine tunes the opening I recommend using a rasp or a file.

I highly recommend using epoxy to install my handle. The tang heating method is not suitable for this type of construction because the bonding is made from epoxy. The high heated temperature of the tang can soften the glue and cause breakage. Of course feel free to contact me if you want some help!
