Sometimes knife handles break or just become old and a new handle would be nice. This video is going to show us how to replace a old handle with a new one. For this project you will need: Mahogany board from a used pallet Jigsaw Backsaw Sandpaper Steel file Drill Brass rods Cut the new handle out of mahogany by tracing the shape of old handle. Make sure to make the tracing slightly wider than the knife. When the handle is cut out, split in two with a backsaw. Now you are ready to sand the mahogany handles. Carefully drill holes into the knife for the handles to be attached. Test the rods you will be using in the holes you have drilled making sure the rod fits snugly through the blade. Smooth the handle as one piece with a file. Now sand both pieces smooth. Attach one side of the wood. Drill a hole through the wood, lining up the holes on the blade so that they match. Use the rods to line up the two handles and repeat the process for the second part of the handle. Insert the rods into the three holes then cut the rods to fit the handles. Using a round file make finger holds on the handle. Pull apart handles leaving the rods in place and line up the holes on the knife with the holes in the handle. Press together making certain there is a snug fit, your new knife is ready to use.
