    Default A covered tang rebuild

    An interesting project..

    An ivory tang Rodgers, with shattered ivory.. heres a little picture story of how it got re-built.

    Pic1: ground down tang


    Pic2: further grinding, drilled out shaft in Ivory Paper micarta. Notched some teeth in the blade's tang so epoxy would hold well. also, it fit so tightly in the shaft, I had to use a rubber mallet to get it all the way in


    Pic3: Epoxied in



    Pic 4&5: Shaping





    Pic6: getting there.. still a little too thick. I took it back to the belts after this.
