The plastic handle of this knife was burned. The knife was a little rusty, cleaned and then I placed a new mulberry handle with stainless steel rivets. It’s a job that I never did, but I looked at some tutorials and encouraged me. In my blog you can see the whole process, and perhaps they serve.
Mineral oil and beeswax for finish.
Very happy with the result, perhaps do it again (hopefully not with the same knife … lol).
Greetings.

Cuchillo al que se le quemó el mango de plástico. La cuchillla estaba un poco oxidada, la limpié y después le coloqué un mango nuevo de mora amarilla con remaches de acero inoxidable. Es un trabajo que nunca hice, pero miré algunos tutoriales y me animé. En mi blog pueden ver todo el proceso, y tal vez les sirva.
Aceite mineral y cera de abejas para la terminación.
Muy conforme con el resultado, tal vez lo vuelva a hacer (espero que no con el mismo cuchillo… lol).
Saludos.
Martín

Martín, quedó excelente ese cuchillo. Me puse también a ver el blog, muy buenos posts. Me gustó la entrada sobre la obsolescencia programada y el criterio de que los muebles deben durar al menos el tiempo que tardó en crecer el árbol que dio la madera para el trabajo. Saludos desde la otra costa.

Gracias eldiegoefe. En este caso lo más probable es que el mango dure más que el mismo cuchillo… La madera de mora tiene una durabilidad, bajo tierra, de 30 años (imaginate si la cuidás), y el árbol de donde saqué la madera tiene alrededor de 25 años. Un abrazo.

Thanks Lew. Yes, fit very well but is a commision… :(

Gracias Gerardo. Siempre es un placer poder compartir lo poco que uno sabe. Se aprende de otros, pero también de la propia experiencia. Un abrazo.

Beautiful, and the blade looks worthy of the effort.

Eddie, the blade is a standar blade, but is in good conditions and works well, so yes worthy the effort. Thanks.

Thanks Leroy, I love this wood. Over time, the color changes to brown and have a beautiful contrast to stainless steel rivets.

MULBERRY! My favorite wood! I love that! I’m currently making the handle for a little pull handsaw (recycled band saw blade) out of Black mulberry from a fallen limb of a local super old tree that gives amazing berries.
Its has a darker golden color from white mulberry and cool brown streaks throughout.

Great save on that kitchen knife
