This was my Grandfathers knife,   :tu:



Sadly when I was younger I never asked him about his life, now his knife has ended up in my possession
I do know He was a cartwright a man that was used to working with hand tools,
And this knife was a tool to be used, It has had a hard working life,  the plastic scales are poorly fitting, cracked in a couple of places and the liners are a little bent





It is a Taylors Eye Witness with Taylors Eye Lambsfoot engraved on the blade

After a few hours of cleaning and sharpening it now looks like this





Tanto point

Lovely and sharp  :tu:



 :cheers:

SHIM

a thin slip or wedge of metal, wood, etc., for driving into crevices, as between machine parts to compensate for wear, or beneath bedplates, large stones, etc., to level them.

Or a thin spacer :) This time, your explanation makes more sense  :cheers:

Hi Ddogu
As the Guys said  :tu:

I use a tuna can cut in to strips
I put the knife together with the shims and peen the pins over
Then I pull out the shims and try opening the knife, if its OK job done
if it's too loose I give the pins a little more peening until I'm happy with it

I hope that makes sense, tell me if you need more information  :salute:

You can use any type of thin metal you like for the shims but aluminium might be too soft
