Well there you go Teak handle installed and ready for work. I burned the tang into the handle and getting the metal cap to fit right was a bit of a pain. It is a thick tang and thin handle so it was a close fit. Sharpened and buffed a good bit of the serious rust off the blade. It still has that great patina but still much cleaner. Can’t wait to reunite it with it’s owner on Sunday at Harwich Cranberry Festival!!!
