Hmmmm, Dave you might be onto something.

I thought maybe I might have clamped them too hard, as in “I squeezed the hell out of it”.

I had three jorgensen bar clamps per knife handle and I had them cranked down pretty much as hard as I could screw them down, seriously cranked. I figured the tang was flat, the scale was flat, I didn’t want a big seam of epoxy showing so squeeze it till the seam pretty much disappeared. Maybe too much :). I’ll get some better epoxy and maybe go a little bit gentler on it on the re-glue. thanks for the ideas
