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. These knives are approximately 50 years old and have significant damage to the steel tang of the handle. We use scotch brite belts and/or sandblasting to clean the rust and corrosion off. We now have a new handle for an old knife. Now it will last another life time.

Here is a machete that the customer wanted to save the handle on and remove the rust. We filled the gaps and voids between the handle and tang, cleaned up and hand sanded, as well as polished the handle. With natural wood handles such as this one we also moisturized the wood. Then we ground the rust off and polished the blade. This, depending on the knife, can cost between $50-$75.
