I bought an old Homestead knife off Ebay for $11 including shipping. The handle was in such bad shape I decided to try and rehandle it myself. I don't have any Wa handled knives so that is what I decided to use. Since the knife was so cheap and figured I wasn't out much if I screwed it up. But I think it turned out pretty nice, and the knife has taken a very keen edge.
