My family was busy today, So this was this afternoons little project, the original Bakelite handle had broken, so I replaced it with some beech wood. Instead of rivets I used brass square head bolts, the finish is a lovely orange wax from the Town Talk Polish Company (smells wonderful and no toxins).
Ooh, nice job.
@fitheach kind of hoping to get another 20yrs out of this knife ;)
Just don't carry it around on your person, or you might indeed get 20 years. 😉
Is it a nice hardened steel?
I don't know how it works in E&W and NI. In Scotland there is a potential 5 year prison sentence for carrying a knife (or even an object fashioned like a knife). Knife related crime in Scotland has dropped significantly over the last decade.
No idea what happens with regards to chefs carrying knives. There are lots of other things you could carry that have the potential to be weapons. I don't know if similar penalties exist for those.
Good knives are the most important kitchen tools.
