    Default Can we fix it

    Got a small Japanese knife that the handle is loose on. Before I epoxy bed it in does anyone know the correct way to do this.
    I want to use this as a utility knife so the handle needs a fix.

    Now that this thread has gone in sy kas in ...

    If you still intend using epoxy to fix the loose blade I strongly recommend that you first mix a small amount of epoxy to get a sense how fast it dries - and how effectively you need to work when you put it on the blade.

    Good luck and let us know the outcome.

    I am told it was a common knife given to Japenese soldiers in WW2. They would make their own hilt and scabard and throw the one you see away as if packaging. I want to use it as a utility knife however I think it was meant to be a stab a Yank knife.

    Hello,

    I only have a limited knowledge of Japanese blades.

    From my limited knowledge it appears that the handle and scabbard are "storage" items only , the knife was not intended to be used with these fittings.

    When these knives were intended to be used they were fitted with completely different "furniture", this was apparently done rather frequently.

    This is a very specialized job , do not try to do this yourself or you will make this knife worthless.

    DO NOT EPOXY THIS KNIFE.

    Cheers.
