Finally took a crack at rehandling my Tojiro ITK bread knife and I'm pretty happy with the results. Dave, Stefan, Marko and Mike etc... you guys need to charge more. :laugh: Maybe it's just because it was my first one and I wanted to take special care not to ruin anything but I suspect you guys take the same precautions. Anyway I didn't take pics all the way through but I can explain my process. 1: Drill off old scales. 2: Grind the tang clean and leave it rough. 3: Drill tang holes 1/4" 4: Trace scales on new wood then rough shape them on belt grinder. 5: Sand scales flat on diamond plate wrapped with sandpaper. 6: Rough cut liner material. 7: Prep liner material and scales by roughing up then cleaning with alcohol. 8: Prepare devcon 2 ton 30 min epoxy and spread on inside of scales then apply to liner material and clamp. 9: Wait 10: Shape, round and polish the front of the scale since this would be much harder once attached. 11: Prepare the tand and scale with roughing and cleaning with alcohol. 12: Prepare epoxy and apply to tang and scale then fit up the scale and clamp. 13: Wait. 14: Drill from the tang side through the scale completely. 15: Prepare other scale, epoxy, clamp. 16: Wait. 17: Drill back from the first scale through the second. 18: Cut mosaic bar into three appropriately sized pieces with a hack saw. 19: Rough up the pins, chamfer the edges and clean with alcohol. 20: Clean the inside of the scale/tang holes with alcohol until cotton swab comes out clean. 21: Prepare epoxy and line the holes with it and coat the pins as well then tap pins through the holes. 22: With a plier, twist pins until they are all facing straight up. 23: Wait. 24: Final rough shaping on belt sander until scales meet the tang smoothly, including grinding off excess pin material until flush. 25: Grind in rough angles all around edges on both sides. 26: Hand shaping and sanding from 100 grit up to 12,000 grit. 27: Mineral oil hand buffing. 28: Pics....... 29: Forget what wood it is.. There's some checks that appeared after sanding so I'm thinking ca glue then re sand a bit. But in any case, I'm happy with it for my first try. What do you guys think?
