Default How i Handle a knife Part 2

Part 2

Scale glued on to the tang



Clean of any excess off the front with a sharp stanley knife



It will then look like this



Next step is onto the bandsaw to remove the excess



Then onto the sander for a clean up all round



Then over to the pillar drill to drill the holes for the pins



You then repeat the same procedure on the other side



While your waiting for it to set,instead of making another roll up, prepare the other three sets of scales for the other knives





When set, back to the bandsaw, cut off the excess and clean up all round on the sander



Back on to the pillar drill and drill through the other side



Your now ready for the pins





Then glue and tap the pins in



Final job back to the disc sander to clean up both faces
If you notice i ramp the scale from front to back



All done,just the final shaping



Next part 3 the final shaping, will get Max to Vid this so you can see how i do it, as its hard to explain
