Replacing A Handle
« on: September 28, 2017, 08:11:30 pm »
Howdy pards,

I have a pocket knife that has "bone" or something similar handles, there are cracked and splintered. I was wondering if it is possible to replace the handles with something else? What tools would be needed? Level of difficulty? Is it something that I could hired done?

Thanks,

Ruff

There's a book on this very thing available at the Public Library that's directed towards 'Case' pocket knives, but the information is valid for all.

The Complete Book of Pocketknife Repair: A Cutlers Manual Paperback – March, 1995 - Ben Kelley Jr.

It's 'not' easy, and guys who can do this are few and far between - and are quite proud of their abilities when they price out their work.

In many cases, their prices supersede the value of the knife...
