I was asked to fix/repair a knife for a friend.
« on: March 09, 2017, 11:44:43 AM »
My friend had a knife passed down to him by his grandfather. The knife was in very bad shape but he wanted to be able to carry it for hunting. He wanted me to put a new handle on it as well as see if I can do something about the knife sheath. I hope with the work I put into it it will be able to be handed down for another generation or 2.

I know he'll love it. Looks like new again. What did you do to the sheath?

Awesome! I have rehandled several knives for friends,it's great to bring them back to life and see the look on their face when they get it back. They thought it was dead,now back to life. Again Awesome
