This is a small job that would have been much harder without the Glowforge.

We often get handles of well loved knives in here to be fixed. Mostly sentimental things - my granddad’s knife or my mother’s kitchen knife.

This one was made by the Western Cutlery Company, Boulder Colorado in the 1950’s.

It had a leather handle made in a way I hadn’t see before. A strange H shared piece wedged in between a double tang . To cut them out by hand would have been a nightmare, but easy on the Glowforge.

I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
