  • pocket knife handle

    A young guy at church had a pocket knife that had a broken handle on one side and the other side was coming off. He asked me if I could make him something to fix it.
    This is my fix. The handles are the same shape and size as the previous ones. They are made from mesquite.

      I never figure on a handle that small but it do have a pretty grain pattern

        That is an unusual type of handle, & you did a fine job fixing up a new one. Very nice. I'm sure your friend loved it. Thanks for showing us.

          Thanks for the kind comments. I will give it to him Sunday before church. A few of us fellers talk hunting, shooting, woordworking, knife making and other stuff before church. Show off stuff too. It's fun.

            I have a craftsman saw. The blade just slips out.

            When a blade slips out, the tendency is to tighten it more. Make sure you haven't over-tightened the clamp forcing the sides apart. Most OEM clamps are made from soft aluminum so once it starts they will continue spreading and it will be near-impossible to keep the blades in place.
