Restoration of an Old Hunting Knife! The most Beautiful Handle

Today I have an old hunting knife for restoration.
This is a knife of one of four in the lot that I purchased!
There is one oddity, none of these knives have a handle, although there are pins for mounting!
Restoration process.
I used electrolysis for rust removal, I used a steel plate as an anode, and the knife itself was the cathode!
For the handle I chose a block of stabilized wood (our craftsmen make them of amazing beauty!!!). In this state, the wood is much harder and denser than a regular bar, thus my new handle will be ETERNAL)))!
I also used a special spacer for knife handles (G10, 1 mm).
I assembled everything with epoxy glue, during assembly I lost my nail on the finger of my left hand (do not try to twist something with a screwdriver if this part is in your palm), could not work for two days, and then completed the processing of the handle.
I treated the handle with wood oil, hand polished it with a cotton ribbon, and was amazed by the beauty of the stabilized wood!!!
I really liked the result, I hope you do too.
There are many more cool and interesting videos on the channel, I will be grateful if you watch some of them!
I started a new channel on ID-card.

Не часто увидишь на ютубе мастеров, которые работают по-старинке. Вместо лентопильного станка - ручная ножовка, вместо гриндера - болгарка, круги на липучке и пара струбцин. Респект от простых пацанов из глубинки.

Nice work! I like to bevel the sides of the front of the scales before gluing them on. It's a lot easier. I also tape off the sides of the blade to keep the glue from going on it. Don't squeeze the clamps too hard, you squeeze too much epoxy out. I like to drill holes in the steel and dimples into the wood. It provides better adhesion.
Обожаю такие видосы перед сном. Ни каких разговоров, только звуки 😁 Автор молодец!

I love the blue and yellow in the wood and the natural pitting in the blade. A nice, stark contrast from the beautifully crafted handle and those special pins for holding the grip scales on top it off perfectly. :) Beautiful knife. I'm definitely subscribing. :)
Beautiful work. The wood really makes it special and the pitting left behind is a nice touch. Glad it's back to a functional condition.

Let's say that your knife was well heat treated at first. Depending on the process and the metal type, we can safely say that harden was between 50 to 60 HRC. And already temper one or two times. So the austenite is now fixed and the steel is no longer under stress.

Все очень информативно и особенно радует что для этого используется минимум инструментов

I love the pitting that was left, looks old and new at the same time. What an intriguing choice of wood too. I haven't heard of stabilized wood before, that's really neat
