Knife Repair and Refurbishing
We do many different kinds of knife repair, from making partially damaged handles more secure and cleaning them up to complete re-handling, polishing and sharpening, and everything in between.
Re-handling costs start at $100.
This is an example of a re-handle on two knives, we use Stabilized wood handles and 20 ton epoxy to increase the life, reliability and structure of the knives.
Here is a machete that the customer wanted to save the handle on and remove the rust. We fill the gaps and voids between the handle and tang, clean up and hand sand, and polish the handle, with natural wood handles such as this one we also moisturize the wood. Then we grind the rust off and polish the blade. This, depending on the knife is between $50-$75.

Polishing Blades: $20-$40
