an old butcher knife...

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

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....

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

Reply by D ale on July 3, 2016 at 19:09

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.
