Title: My favorite boning knife
Post by: Plumber on August 10, 2020, 02:06:03 PM
Just an old knife I've had for over 40 years, and gotten used to it.

I have a boning knife that looks nearly identical except for the name.  It has the same pattern stamped on it.  I made a sheath for it and use it when I am cooking outside or camping, which I seldom get to do these days.  It is  a Ontario Old Hickory.

Neat knife.  Did you pour that bolster?

I poured it using block tin. There are two holes in the blade, a brass pin goes in one and the bolster goes in the other. One of my favorite methods.

Randyt, That is a nice looking knife, what is the handle made of?

It's a bone I found in the woods, assume it' s whitetail. I stained it with some leather dye I had laying about.

a poured bolster is my preferred method. I've done it on knives and guns. I've used tin and pewter. Been going to try leadfree solder but have enough tin so no need yet.

I watched a guy use pewter on a Scandinavian knife he was putting a new handle on.  He used a business card and held it in place with clay.  He poured it using silver solder. Some filing and polishing later it looked pretty good.  He also made end caps on rifle stocks with this method.

I use heavy paper from a brown paper bag, held in place with either string or tape.
