Turned out great i always wondered how they did the stacked leather on those ones, didn’t know they had a double tang but makes perfect sense now. Did you swap out the pins as well or were they brass before? I see a drill bit in one of the photos so i think you might have had to drill them out?
Would be cool to remake another one but swap out the leather for sheets of paper or some other medium like that. wouldn’t be traditional and would be a nightmare to cut all the layers possibly but could turn out pretty cool. or layers of acrylic
I love restoring old tools and such. I get very sentimental about such things in my own life. So much so that my mother used to tell me “Be sure that when you consider sentimental value, that you’re not just focusing on the sentiment, but also on the value.” Very cool knife!
