Replace a Wooden Knife Handle

Replace a Wooden Knife HandleIf you break the handle on your favorite kitchen knife you will probably either look forward to shopping for a new knife or wish you could give your trusty knife a new handle yourself. For those who'd rather fix what they have, you can remove the pieces of the old handle with a hacksaw and then you can cut and attach a new handle.

After removing the old handle, Instructables user canuckinjapan instructs you to use am older piece of wood that is mostly dry for the new handle. Cut the wood in the rough shape of the handle, then cut a slot down the center of the wood block to fit the blade. At this point you'll want to pare down the wood with files to get the exact shape you're looking for and then drill holes to match the holes in the blade. Finally insert two pieces of heavy gauge copper wire in the holes in the knife, cut the ends of the wire, and use a bit of epoxy glue to seal the handle.
