an old butcher knife...

Started by Dan Neyhouse. Last reply by D ale Dec 17, 2019. 4 Replies

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

Comment by D ale on December 6, 2019 at 15:56

?? does the gap close up if you squeeze the effected area of the knife between your finger & thumb ??
Good & useful pics !

Gonna add another couple.  First one on the first reply shows the general condition of the knife.  Seemed like a good investment at the time...

D ale,

I will do that, but will have to take the picture first, Duh.  I will try to get that done after I finish a couple of other little chores.  Thanks.

... 'n welcome to the "Repair & Mod" group, Bruce !!!
As we all know .. pearl is rather fragile. If you'd post a pic of the existing gap between the pearl & the liner .. it would help toward proceeding w/ suggestions.

Could you / would you post a pic of the "gap".

I've a couple of questions about knife repair, but will confine it to this one first.  I recently purchased a H & B jack knife in what I consider pretty nice condition except for one small flaw.  The scales are mother of pearl, unbroken and undamaged.  However, one of the scales is warped away from the liner a small amount.  I am not skilled enough (at least not yet) to remove the scale and repin it.  Is there some way to reattach reglue(?) the scale without disassembly?  Any suggestions will be appreciated, since I am just beginning to get my feet wet in this repair stuff.  I would not be afraid to attempt removing and repinning the scale if it were anything but MOP, but I know how brittle this is.  Thanks.
