This was a fun project that I did for a gift. I bought the blade from an online supplier and fit the handles to it with epoxy and brass rod. The biggest challenge was getting the holes drilled precisely through the handles. Everything else was done with hand files, which took some time but was satisfying when it began to take shape. A simple project that I enjoyed a lot. The recipient really liked it too. Thanks for looking!

Holes …
1 drill holes in the steel tang
2 epoxy wood slab to one side only (Side A)
3 drill holes from holes in tang through wood
4 epoxy other slab to other side (Side B)
5 use holes in side A and tang to guide drill through side B
6 epoxy brass pins in place

the only wood to be pre-finished is the ends nearest the blade
