I bought a Becker Necker BK11 knife some time ago. i eventually made scales for it out of African mahogany. Took about a month of fine tuning. (i work 2nd shift and i watch my 18 month old son while my wife works during the day. I don’t get a lot of time to hobby) I originally drilled 2 holes in it as i was going to pin them on. I decided against it and epoxied them on. Worked perfect. Now to fill in those holes. I made a dowel plate this morning. After numerous tries i made 2 dowels out of orange wood just for a look. First went in without a hitch. 2nd snapped the darn handle. Man i was hot. Still am. i sanded down the handle of the knife and started again. this time, no holes. Just epoxy. Its setting up now. Ill get to play again Friday. The suspense….
