Re: Help/Advice for repairing my handle

I'm beginning to understand why I like handles stuck on with beeswax - plus it really never changes color, and all home hardware store epoxy will yellow with age. Check out Ablestick or masterbond stuff. Or you can buy furniture finishing resins or boat resins I would really like to use beeswax, i ...

Re: Coffee Lovers

Yeah, I’m thinking I may need to upgrade. OH no, yeah those blender grinders aren't great since they will leave you will super inconsistent grounds(lots of super fines and boulders) which affect how your coffee extracts(like cooking different sized carrots at the same time). It'll be a weird combo ...

Yes, clean it up and use a good epoxy. I like G-Flex from West systems.

Before glueing back together fit the ferrule to your knife and after a quick cosmetic refinish it will be good as new.
Do you think i can use JB Weld as well ?
Yes, absolutely.

Epoxy or supergluing should work.

I love the idea, but I have so many CI/CS pans I would have to give several away to make room for anything new.

Re: Back again for another recommendation

So, I’ve looked around at a bunch of knives and read a bunch of reviews. Can anyone talk me out of the koishi? I’ve heard conflicting comments about it being somewhat fragile at the tip. But it just looks like it’s my knife waiting for me. And is AS a good first high carbon steel, or should I look ...

Re: I like nail polish

Does that make changing handles down the road more difficult? The epoxy is what makes changing handles hard. If you think you will be changing our handles, I highly recommend beeswax installs. Exactly why I ask everyone that gets a rehandle. Some people like the "it won't come off in my hand" theor...

Re: Edge retention of daovau knives

I don’t have a wustoff to compare, but I do have several Dao knives. I think they need a full progression or two to get past edge steel. After that I find they have similar or better retention than most of my knives in that price point.
