Rehabbing a 100 year old plus high carbon steel chef knife. The blade was in really good shape but the handle was rusting and the wood was rotten and falling off. I removed the old handle and hit the rust with a brush then sprayed it with a rust converter. I then picked out a scrap piece of mammoth tusk we had kicking around and a piece of bacote wood, it is one of my favorites. I then added some green liner and brass pins. I gave it a sharpening and polish and now it sings and cuts like a dream. Really happy with it. I love giving these old knives a new lease on life. I hope the customer is just as thrilled.
