    Think I have a new favorite skinning knife

    I have a knife with a broken handle so I pulled out some antique Ivory from my collection and put this together. Custom to fit Rt hand. The Rt side of the handle is a bit longer to keep the finger hold from rubbing my finger and the Lt side has been shaped to my thumb rest. I epoxy'ed a towel through both pin holes and the flats. Should hold well but if it doesn't I will use brass pins. Then polish and do a bit of scrimshaw on the handles.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    I matched up the pin holes drilled out each piece and made the dowel to fit. Placed the epoxy in and then the dowels and clamped.

    This is a wood working forum. Nothing about ivory, steel or such.
    To be properly punished you must send that knife to me for proper disposal.

    Actually, very neat. I like.
    I believe your 'towels' should hold alright.
    I have used brazing rod. Cheap and tough.
