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.
