USN MK2

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

Good evening everybody!I have a question that will probably have as many answers as there are opinions on it.I recently came into the stewardship of a 1888 Prussian bayonet.  Before actually taking possession, I thought it was a 1940ish bayonet,…Continue

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

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...

OK, here we go.  I can post more if it will help but thought this may get it started.

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.

Enjoy,

Bruce, 

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

Comment by Bruce Zenge on December 6, 2019 at 14:33

Hi,

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.

Bruce

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....
