Tighten Bolsters?

Postby Gunhawk » Thu Jan 18, 2018 1:28 am

I have a 13" stiletto with a very loose blade. You can actually hear it clacking back and forth when I shake it. It has really nice horn and it's in good condition though, so I was wondering if anyone in this forum can tighten the bolsters, or recommend someone who can.

Thanks.

Bill, my assumption is that you would charge $70.00 to tighten the bolster?

No, probably about $15-$20, but it costs $10 to ship it back.
Someone else may be able to do it cheaper.

Gunhawk: Bill has the integrity of a priest. He's not going to tell you one thing, then do another. Bill is known the world over as a "straight shooter". I have always respected his opinion and appreciated his vast knowledge in the world of knives. He understands more than most of us ever will. If he does the work, you can count on quality labor and precision craftsmanship.
