  • Knife got a new Lease on Life

    A knife we had for 25 plus years finally gave up the ghost. As I was using it the other evening, the blade broke where it goes into the handle. Then I broke the handle getting the rivets out. I welded the blade then I made a aluminum handle out of 1/4" flat bar.I eased the corners with the belt sander drilled new holes and pressed in new rivets.
    I know it was not worth it time wise but, we got our knife back with a new face lift..

      I couldn't open the pictures, but "waste not, want not". I like the idea of giving old things new life, here is a picture of a knife that I gave a new handle. My buddy paid a dollar at a flea market.
