Good Evening!I just acquired a USN MK2 knife a couple of days ago.  The grip's leather discs were horribly dehydrated, and the guard was a bit bent; but for the most part, it was in pretty good shape.  It really needed some cleaning and just a touch…Continue

Started to open this one up just for filework and the handles snapped (it happens).  So I fileworked it and thought about what route to take on the handles.  I'd never done a cigar band but had the material...so...I put a cigar band on her and found scraps from my last 2 giraffe handles that fit the bill.  So, here's my first cigar band on a Case slimline trapper, I laid down a hybrid form of a vine pattern along the spine and back spring..

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

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.

Bruce
