First Rehandle

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

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.

 

Original handle:

 

Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, R1.1.1.||B2||T0JKX0lEPTRmNjc4MmQ3YTI1YTAzMjkwNGY2Y2VlZGMwMTg3YzA1MTEwNTMwYTliNTQ0fHxTRUxMRVJfTkFNRT1qZjA1NzYzfHxPUklHSU5BTF9FQkFZX1FVQUxJVFlfU0NPUkU9NHx8Q1JFQVRJT05fREFURT0zLzUvMTMgODoyMiBQTQ==

 

Tang after scales were removed:

 

 

 

 

 

Tang after grinding to the depth of the wa handle:

 

 

 

 

 

Finished and sharpened knife:

HI there,

 

I live in Perth Australia, If I send you a couple of knives could you rehandle them, if so, how much would you that be,

 

cheers,

Thanks Dsanchez2503, but I'm not the one you would want to rehandle your knives.  I am worse than a rank amateur.  There are people on here that would do you a very good job. Maybe someone more knowledgeable can give you some suggestions.
