Here is a pretty nice whittler pattern with cracked ice celluloid scales. When I got it the 2 smaller blades were perfect but I made the mistake of putting it into a fairly sealed environment and found it one day with out gassed damage. Anyone have any tips for me on how to deal with this problem? Can the blades be brought back to a shine? I used a little Simichrome on the blades and bolsters.

You will probably get several suggestions. If it was my knife, I would consider removing the celluloid handles at the least, because I would assume they are continuing to gas, and they would be affecting the brass and nickel silver and the springs as well as the blades. As you know, there are some folks who post here that fit new handles to knives. I guess this is a heads-up to me as well; I have some cell knives which may not be getting enough air circulation. :oops:

tongueriver is correct. You really should remove the celluloid handles as they will continue to gas and ruin the blades, liners and springs. There are several members here who do do excellent work restoring knives.

I still have it. I oiled the blades and folded them to the full open position and left it in an open air display shelf so it would not get any more damage(hopefully). I just do not have the funds to spend on it right now or I would have already had it re-handled. It's a sweet knife and real snappy.
