Hello everyone, Merry Christmas! I found an old Robeson ShurEdge butcher knife awhile back, in a flowerbed of all places. Cleaned it up a bit, it's still pitted, and from what I've been able to find online, not worth much. I would like to reuse this…Continue

Recently rehandled this 1940-64 Case "camp" knife for a guy.  Here are before and after shots.

I did this piece this morning.  Pretty darn pleased with it.

I was out looking for some torex bits , the other day, and found this instead.  Looks handy enough to do adjustments on my few tactical style knives.

Hi D ale and anyone else interested. 

I finished the H & B knife with loose MOP scale.  Using your suggestion of 5-minute epoxy, the scale is now firmly attached and the knife cleaned up.  Pictures attached.  Thanks for the advise and support.  I now have a pretty, solid and functional addition to the accumulation of cutting instruments.

Always good to have folks to ask questions when there is a new challenge afoot.

Specifications
DRSPB8 = .5 long x .125 diameter
(includes 2/2-56 BHT 1/4 screws)
Thread = 2-56
Material = 303 Stainless
(1 Package = 1 Pivot + 2 Screws)

Note: All KnifeKits.com pivots are heat treated for low wear.
.
Their LINK came back up.

.

However, should you experience any difficulties ... I've still got one in the wings for you.
.
While on that subject .. you might consider "washers" through the pins & between the blade & liners. Although, the above linked washers  are 0.015" thick ea. This set is slightly thinner @ 0.012" thick ea. 

... ... ... BUT ... ... ...

imo .. I'd skip the washers because the threaded fasteners of the hardened pins allow for an infinite adjustment for your desired fit. Further, once threadlocked into place .. they stay there. Well, till you might desire removal for some purpose or an adjustment @ a later date anyway.

.

Again, if you experience any difficulties through Knifekits .. I've a hardened SS pivot pin in the wings for you.
.
Note: I've sourced a lot of parts through knifekits & never experienced a problem !

.

Enjoy,

D ale

OK, that computes.  I would be tickled if you would lend me a fastener.  I can see this also making it easier to leave a slight clearance for smooth blade movement.  You must, however, allow me to replace it when the web site comes back up.  How would you prefer I send you my home address?  My email is brucensherry@gmail.com.  Thanks

Bruce
