Made it into the shop today to finish up a pronghorn for an order. I thought that it looked pretty good and then the dang thing bent right near the middle. I am at a loss and not sure what to do now. Maybee you guys could give some suggestions.

Maybe you should send it up here and let it get acclimated in the low humidity. I think that would fix it right up... Of course it would probably need to stay for several years to be sure it doesn't go bad again!!

If you clean the joint with acetone or spray brake cleaner in there I think super glue will get it to stay straight and it will still be a great looking knife!!!!

Nice Bill, one question. What type of screws are you using. They look like maybe an allen. If so could you PM or email me where you are getting them.

A very sweet knife.
