The tang has a series of V notches ground in using the edge of a 120 grit belt so there is plenty of grip for the epoxy and no need for a pin. The copper bolster was a tap fit and tight to the tang and ricasso so a couple of heavy rubber bands over that and the top of the handle was all that was required to hold it tight together till the epoxy set.Beautiful! How is the handle attached on the smaller knife?
Mr. Gruff, When you do the Scandi grind do you go to zero with the bevel or is there a secondary angle? I love those by the way...These are three I did for a repeat customer with his supplied wood walnut, rosewood and olivewood with brass on .156 1095 scandi ground blade. I forgot to take pics before sending them off so coppied the pic he posted on the forum when he recieved them this week.
