need 2 knives rescaled Done, THX PLP

Postby thom » Thu Jan 11, 2018 10:55 pm

I have two AGA Campolins I would like to have rescaled. Both are pick locks, and wasp body. One is 13" and the other 11". I have the scales. I am looking for a talented person to do this. Anyone interested or have ideas. George C. can't do it. Does any one have Pat Havlins email address?

Lots of people here could do it. You might check with Bill, he could do it as well as anyone else could.

I would love to rescale them for you, but since my neck and shoulder issues became a really monumental pain I just can’t promise to have them done in a reasonable time frame.
PM JimB, BillD, muskratman, StrayDog and many others someone will do it for you.
