Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I have a Cold Steel Kukri that was left in a fire and the handle was melted off. I have completely cleaned and sanded it and I notice it had 3 pretty big pin holes. I want to cut some Zebra Wood I bought and make my own handle for it. I bought some Gorilla Glue and I was hoping I could glue it together. The pin holes are VERY large. I have some wooden dowels that nearly fit perfectly. I am wondering with gorilla glue if I would be better off doing a glue only connection and letting the glue fill the pin holes or if I should stick these wooden dowels in there? If I just use glue I have heard that they would make a pin like bond. If I put the dowels in though there won't be much space for the glue to create its own pin and I am not sure how well the glue will attach to the metal. Opinions?
