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

Sue,

I'd love to have you post some results.

I also have a few "gassing" knives.

It's such a shame !

.

Thanks for posting.

Rehandling the old celluloid knives as they begin to start gassing ........Is what we are into now.........Lots of antique Case knives and some newer ones early 90's are starting to decompose........Will post pictures as we get them done....

Just realized, this afternoon, that I forgot to post a link to the 58mm SAK video.

Cece .. this is from a previous post. It's a post Re: epoxying wooden scales to metal liners.

After meticulously cleaning the liners of old epoxy & milling the mating surface of the scale perfectly flat .. I just trashed all that .. intentionally. Rather .. I just roughed up the surfaces to be epoxied for better adhesion.

The scales have been epoxied & pinned in place. The whole affair is "resting" for the night in a nice tight vice. I used Loctite IDH# 1393759 ..60 minute 2-part epoxy.The directions suggest leaving undisturbed for 3 hours .. full cure in 24 hours ..&.. that's what it will get.

.

Hope that helps.

Cece, I'm assuming that you'll be doing the woodwork and fitment yourself.  L

Dale said, I usually just do simple swaps, but found this awesome video on making custom scales for a 58 mm SAK where he uses the 2 part epoxy like Dale suggested.

Good luck and post pics.
