Re: Show us your rack!

Finally got almost all the knives out with the install of a legit rack. This one was made by my friend in Winnipeg, Brent Biglow. It's 72 inches wide in total, couple inches at each end aren't usable, and a 1 inch gap in the middle between magnet sets. The knives don't slide or twist, and it's made...

Re: How to install a wa-handle

One more question (I'm getting primed and ready to do this); In a beeswax install, Is there any special reason why I shouldn't insert the tang immediately after pouring in the wax, while it's hot, instead of waiting and then later heating the tang? Thanks again. Everyone's feedback, and especially ...

Re: How to install a wa-handle

Thanks for the videos Ben. I learned a lot from watching. Very impressed at how calm you are when working with 5 minute epoxy. Thank you for sharing and for taking the time to make and post the videos. Calm. Ha. Please keep in mind I so this several times a month. Sometimes several times a week.

Another question:
Is there any special to "clean up" a tang? As in, smoothing it out?
Or should it just be cleaned of dust?
Wipe it down with acetone or 90% alcohol.

Re: How to install a wa-handle

So, I've watched the https://youtu.be/BIbEMcq70AA,CKTG clip on YouTube , but the glue they're using seems very different from what I've got. I've the "regular" two-tube mix of epoxy glue on hand, and it isn't have as fluid as what is seen in the video. I thought I may as well ask for tips, tricks, ...

Re: How to install a wa-handle

Wow, thanks for the helpful responses, all of you. Ben (I imagined you looking COMPLETELY different!), that looks easy enough, thanks for the great vid! Question - does the beeswax really remain firm in use? :o :o Yes. I have several pro and home cooks who use it. I also have a video that demonstra...

Yes... ugh, the money.

Can't we pay some subscription, and start a club, where we have access to these knives... like a boat club or something? How much would that have to be p/month, if there were, say, 20 of us? Hahaha
I have thought of starting that, Netflix for knives.

Re: How to install a wa-handle

Bensbites shared this video of installing a handle with beeswax. Hope he's ok with me sharing it. I'm gonna give it a go very soon on a gorgeous handle I picked up from him. Never had a handle installed with beeswax but it seems relatively common. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1BJRVSzszU3BooHznKi...

Thank you. The metal spacers are more labor than the wooden spacers, that gets reflected in the price.
