3 and 1/2” blade length. All it needed was a little love. New handles and some filing and honing and it’s back in the game. I’m liking it!

The new handles are different than the old. The originals were drilled through with the tang curled over to hold it on. The new ones are like file handles, step drilled and pressed on.

looking good ….....but hopefully you used epoxy too
othervice it wont hold up to the job …...they need a counterhold to stay in place
and bending the end around is a good strong hold

Looks good, Hairy! Dennis might be right about the epoxy, though.

Thanx, fellas! I considered epoxy. It’s an option I’ll leave open for now.
