    Im new to knife restoration and was planning on restoring a Schrade 153UH that was given to me by my now deceased great grandfather but ive run into an issue right off the bat. I plan to remove the handle and restore the knife from the ground up but cant figure out how to remove the antler handle. Any help would be greatly appreciated and ill provide pictures below.

    I have never disassembled one of those. It appears the handle is either wedged in place or moulded onto the tang.
    The handle is plastic, not antler.
    My recommendation is to not learn knife restoration on a knife that is important to you, because you WILL mess something up. Properly restoring knives takes years to learn.
    I would put it back together and treasure it as something from your great grandfather.
