A Plus Hardwoods in New Brunswick, Canada. I trace the tang out and leave room for shaping the arc at the bolster end.
I shape the arc mostly with a disc sander and the by hand with 180 grit sandpaper and a block.
West System g/flex. Put on the rubber gloves and smear every surface. This epoxy is forgiving as it takes time to set.
Now the wait. It takes almost a whole day for the epoxy to set hard enough to grind. Be patient here. Set the knife in a warm place for at least 12 hours.
