  • New Knife handle

    Just finished a new knife handle.. Story behind this knife, it was given to me in the 70's?? 75? As a gift darn thing was so beautiful I did not want to carry it with me hunting ort fishing. It had a jet black Phoenlic handle and I just gave hugs around and stored it. Occasionally showing it off, then 3 years ago I was showing it to a friend and the handle had cracked down the middle.
    I removed the old handle by freezing it, hammering it off and now found some Red heart to fix it with. It has taken me several hours and many thoughts and now to gift it to my younger son whose 55th BD is next week. He was about 6 years old when I recieved it. And thanks for looking.

      I've used purple heart, but never red heart, is it hard as well? It certainly took a great finish. I had to laugh, your youngest at 55, where did time fly? My boy is 61 and my youngest, a girl, 49.

      I don't know if it is because from my grandfather to me, we were connected to a meatpacking plant, & it was a suggestion that you never gave anyone a knife, you made them pay 1¢, or your friendship would be cut.?????????

      I'm sure your son will certainly treasure this knife, it looks to be a beauty

        Nice job to save what looks to be a fine knife. Who is the maker?? I can make out that it was made in Oregon USA But not the maker.

          If I read it correctly, that's an old Kershaw/Oregon, maybe kai/Japan.
          You did a grand job of dressing it up again.

          The big brass made me think of Kershaw. I'm toying with the idea to get a First Nations carver to engrave some totems in the brass on mine.

              Looks like it says Kershaw on the box. I have one of their modern knives....still made in the USA.

                  HI all, I made a mistake on the wood, it is Purple heart. Via my Grandson who is nuts about the hardest wood he can get."it must have rubbed off on to him?". I did recieve this Kershaw model 1034 and it was made by Kershaw In Lake Oswego OR,( now defunk) my wife purchased it from a small store in 1977( after a bit of research) and "gave it to me through my sons " for a Christmas present.

                  She showed me a photo of the presention yesterday.... I have looked it up on on the net, NLA and Ebay has one that is in good condition for 350 + I say good as it was used, mine never had a stone/strop to the blade nor had been carried on a belt. So that my friends, is my story and I'm stickin to it.
                  Oh plus the wife says he thinks she paid about $55. for it.
                  Cheers and be safe.

                    Brian, I love to use brass inlays, and also some sea shell. I don't show much of my items Maybe one day.. and so Kai Japan yes it is. Was a joint product, to bad the handle failed. But for me a fun project.. In fact I had the idea to inlay the rib of the handle with about 1/8" line of brass. Ah well.
                    Take care up there.

                      I had a look on the net and thought it might have been a kershaw 1035. Both the 1034 and 1035 look to be a very collectable knife.so well worth looking after with the really nice handle replacement. Sure was a nice present!!

                      I rather like knives and have made the odd one now and then so found this really interesting.

                      Have a couple of USA knives marked krllo Beautiful things!!! Can't find any history on the maker. They have high carbon steel blades that are razor sharp. Does anyone know of this maker?? Mine has has done its job on quite a few deer over the years.
