    Hmm, good question. I have my first set of ram's horn scales to apply soon. I don't know how tough they are against bolting forces. I mean... they're evolved to take some serious abuse, but cut into scales are squeezed by bolts? I don't know. I plan to epoxy/pin these to the blade in question. The knife will be for the ritual sacrifice of wood pellet bags for a pellet stove using a sort of kosher-slaughter-style blade, so ram's horn w/ red liners seems appropriate. :D

    corby bolts? the classic look of a pin with the strength of a bolt.

    Just completed the Puronvarsi 120mm knife. The blade has a slightly modified belly. The spine and bevels were straightened and the blade was hand polished to 800x then gray Scotch Brite for a soft satin finish. The handle is goncalo alves with padauk and ebony spacers and Lin-Speed oil finish taken to 800x for a low luster finish. The butt was convexed. The nickel-silver bolster has a lightly peened finish.

    What brand of hatchet was this? Do you know or was it just a garage sale find?

    It's a Goldberg, found in France in the river Loire during a canoe trip.
    Here you can see all restoration steps and info I have on it.
