Repair/Salvage of a broken knife

    Every once in a while, something terrible happens to a knife... in this case, someone broke one of our customer's knives in half. Usually, when someone says their knife is broken, they dont quite mean this. And i always tell people to never throw anything away until i have a chance to look at it. In general, many things people think cant be repaired, are easily repaired. In some cases, when the knife cant be repaired, we can salvage enough to make something useful with the broken bits. Here is an example of that...

    Wow, that is the funkiest axe I've ever seen!

    Just kidding. Nice work. I'd have tapered the neck a little more (wider at handle, narrower at choil) but that's just a visual preference.

    Salvage is sometimes really rewarding work.
  5. Sick! Is that an OG Zakuri handle on there? And what type of knife was this to begin with?
