My brother-in-law came to me with this big, beaten ugly. old butchers knife that was handed down from his father. It had hockey tape holding the handle together and severe hammer marks on the spine. I only wish I had the foresight to take some before photos. He now uses it as a camping chopper and asked me to re-handle this bad boy. I left some of the character on the blade and beveled the spine. He also asked for a sheath. This is what I came up with. Black micarta with white micarta spacer and stainless tube. Thanks for looking.
