The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
Never been really find of dyed (red, blue, green, etc) bone knife scales. Did some reading on the possibility of re-dying knife scales, while on the knife, and decided to give it a try.
Picked up a bottle of Rit liquid dye, dark brown, while I was at hobby lobby getting some leather.
Didn't want to possibly ruin one of the bosses pans so I warmed up some water in the microwave and mixed some dye and hot water in a plastic bowl.
15 minutes later...I'm pleased with the results.
Not totally brown, but brown with red undertones.
Others have reported that this method produces a dye that's deep and should last as long as an original dye would. Not being simmered, I'll see how this holds up. If it doesn't, there's always black.
