do any of you guys use old antique knives maybe ones you have fixed up in some way? i like to rehandle them and sometimes redo the blades into better profiles. kinda new here on the board and havent seen much in the way of this was just wondering. i have some real good ones that i got into really cheap to be as good as they turned out.
thanks jason

Jasontn,
you might want to post something on the "Roundrobin" thread concerning your knives........might get you more attention!

Jasontn..there are quite a few folks that do just this thing you mentioned.

Some might chime in about the correct handle attachment...number of 'pins' etc., for a given time frame.

Iv thought about doing some myself...make them correct to the period. Most antique and 'junk' stores sell them for next to nothing,,,,,which is a good thing !

Happy knifing sir

My apologies jasontn! I thought we might have the opportunity to see your work if displayed there in the RoundRobin. I didn't mean to imply you were on a fishing expedition! Never the less I would still like to see what you make, just for reference. Perhaps some of us might get some inspiration from you...........from a technical vantage point.

Again, my sincerest apologies!

p.s do you have any knives for sale?

How d' ye!

I don't because my wants/needs in a belt knife require a knife that is stouter than a typcial common table cutlery or trade type thin bladed knife.
But a pard of mine "recycled" old cutlery and trade-type blades with new handles.

Here is a sample of original knives that include "table cutlery" and "trade type" thin blades:

Those are all pretty dang cool knives! I'm actually just getting into knifemaking-starting on my first one hacksawing it from an old crosscut saw blade. I'll grind and file to finish and put a 2 or 3 copper pinned antler handle on it and use boot leather for the sheath. Ill post a pic when it's finally done! ( I ruined a cold chisel trying to chisel it out of the sawblade! Oops! live n' learn...) Anyway, thanks for the pics, it's good input! Adam

Adam if you have access to one a 4.5" sidegrinder and cutoff wheel will cut it out quicker go slow and you want heat it up to much.Of coarse a plasma arc is what I use at work when I want stock remove a blade.
