    A couple months back, somebody posted a knife he sent out to a guy to have rehandled. It came back with new bone scales and some work done on the bolsters and looking great. I can't find the thread now. The recent history here only goes back 5 pages, to March 08, and I don't remember enough specifics to do a search.

    Anyway, I recently won a very nice 225H for about $18 because I took a chance on some really bad pictures. But one of the scales has an area that is very worn down. I would like to investigate the possibilty of doing this with this knife. Can someone anybody who does this kind of work? Also, can you give me a very rough idea how much it might run to have custom bone handles put on?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    Dave, you could also visit the "Knifemakers For Sale, Folding Knives" forum, and look at pics. for ideas. there is some amazing talent there and most of the knife makers are v. friendly and helpful. i'll bet you could find someone there to re-handle knife and sharpen/tune it up to a stunning finished product. (some really nice stag or mastodon ivory maybe ?). contact me if you want any recommendations; i've bought a few knives there. roland

    I'm pretty sure orvet (Dale) can do that type of work quite well, but I don't know his schedule. You might try sending him a PM if interested, as he doesn't check in quite as much anymore.
