Weidmannshell utility

Post by glennbad » Mon Aug 10, 2020 7:21 pm

This is probably more of a re-cover than a repair. The owner had dropped the knife and cracked off a piece of the original bone on one side, which they made a repair on. They initially wanted just one side re-covered with the same material. I thought it better to do both sides so they would match.

This was a fun and challenging project due to the construction and the amount of blades involved. hunter green carved stag bone...the original had been used and had some of the darker dye color rubbed off. I think the new covers will come to look like that with time and use.

Before...you can see the repair in the lower left corner.

They buried William in the old church yard, And Barbara there anigh him,
And out of his grave grew a red, red rose, And out of hers, a briar.....
They lapped and tied in a true love's knot. The rose ran around the briar.
