Hi, I want to repair few kitchen knives handles and I am looking for a non-expensive material. I can see some G10 scales in Amazon, but the price is compared with the knife itself! So far I found a good oak bar from Home Depot ($2 for a piece sufficient for 2 full handles), but I would rather use something synthetic because sometimes we wash knives in a a dishwasher. I know it is wrong, but arguing with the wife is worse. I rather buy new knives If you know a good source of useful materials, please let me know. It is my first work with the knives, so I want to start with the right tools and technics. Thank you.
