Store bought knife build?

#1 Post by Graps » Sun Apr 07, 2019 7:05 pm

I was wondering if there would be any interest in a build along using a purchased finished knife blade?
I got a medium sized chef's knife and I was thinking of doing a build along for making and installing a handle on it.
So what do you think?
It will be the same process for a hunting blade too.

Sure. I've had a nice Hoffritz 6" kitchen utility knife I removed the tore up scales from. I bought some wood that is probably only aged. I need 3 rivets and the desire to fit the scales to the built in bolster that angles away from the wood towards the blade just a little bit.

But, I've got to do brakes around on the car, maybe fix an oil leak, get a starter for the mower and then tackle the garden first. By then, maybe Charter Arms will have put a new barrel on my old Bulldog and I'll have to see how she shoots.
Jesus replaces the old covenant and speaks to the believer the moral code of God by His Spirit directly to the heart. He is the eternal, everlasting revelation of God to mankind. In Him is both the knowledge of righteousness and the power to live right.

I'm watching. :D

Sorry this hadn't happened yet but I have been under the weather.
Hopefully this next week.
