    Freaking great! :doublethumbsup:

    Two questions: Didja boil it because the previous handle was glued in? And what wood did you use as the dowel, do you think it matters which type?

    Yes, I boiled it because it was epoxied, and the normal 1x4 trick didn't work. It took all of 30 seconds in the pot to loosen it. Also, the old handle made it unscathed. As for the dowel, I went with oak this time, as I used a 3/8" dowel as apposed to the normal 1/2". It was the only kind of hard wood available in this size at my local shop. I do try to use hardwoods over pine for the extra stability. The oak was a bit harder to work, because of the larger grain structure.

    Really awesome. I'm gearing myself up to do this.

    What do you use to cut the dowel? hack saw or something else?

    I use a band saw, but a hack saw would work, I'm sure.

    That handle looks great.

    Those spacers are killer.
    I always like your color choices.

    Yeah when it comes to making screaming colors work on a carbon knife there is no one like Chop making it work that well.
