My repaired knife back from Bill

Postby Scotchman » Mon Apr 16, 2018 3:28 pm

Here is my knife. Bill did an excellent job. He tightened the blade, replaced the kick spring, and put on a new scale. Thank you Bill!!

Thank you.
It was rescaled because someone had thinned the scales at the end to "streamline" the knife. When I attempted to remove one of the front pins, the scale shattered-hence the replacement.

Your knife looks new. Bill did a great job.
Did you post photos of your knife a while back. Not long ago I have a recollection of seeing a knife in need of a safety was that your knife?

Looks good but what would expect being worked over by Bill.
Set your goals low and your standards lower and you're gonna have good luck with the girls.

Wow that looks great! I've got one to send to Bill for re-scaling as soon as he starts accepting more work!
