More Additions to the Repair pile....

Post by kugr » Sun Feb 02, 2020 5:12 am

Image

In the mix is a Mauro Mario (very top), Coricama (bottom left), Regal (bottom), Stainless Bonsa ( previous owner ruined the blade, welding), A springer (no backspring/spring, missing bolster, scales), a spanish OTF Zafrilla ( scale shrinkage, missing spring, not sure what else is missing), 2 rizzutos... (god help me....), 2 INOXID swing guards, ice scraper rizzy clone, and 3 old school americans...

This is only a partial list.... I'm still finding knives and parts randomly... after months (read- I still haven't fully moved in/unpacked).
Looking for those un-repairable, lost cause stilettos.

I hate to sound pessimistic but you might want to prepare yourself for the possibility that the Bonsa blade can't be saved.

Oh yes.... It is a lost cause..... I'll be keeping my eye out for a replacement... If i'm luck, I might run across one (one day...) that has a great blade, but has a bad body.... haha. That one came in a lot with, the springer, imco,no named picklock, 2 mexican picklocks, and a few others in bad shape.

Actually, a flatgrind bo/c blade is a great starter replacement job. Once you are ready to try making a blade, that would be a great one. That is if there are no issues with the handle.

I have an extra flat grind that may work for you. What is the overall length of the blade once removed from the body?
