So here is how it came out. I still have some work to do on the blades and a few details but it’s basically done. Notice that I swapped the bail to the other end so there is no way to close the blade on it. Everything moves great and has good snap. Very happy with the results.  Thanks to everyone who followed along.  :salute:

I would make that a regular carry because it doesn't have heavy collectible value and can be carried without worry and actually be used. You may be able to route a cross in the scales and put the cross in it from the original scales you have. That looks good and must have been a lot of work.

That was my thoughts exactly. I may work the cross into these scales. There are still a few rough edges to work on but I’m going to give it a break for a while and enjoy using it.

This turned out really nice.  Glad you will carry and enjoy.  I'm sure it feels great to have this old fella back in action. 

Thank you for documenting this.

So I did some more touch up work today. Mostly just evened up the scales a bit. Carrying it last night a lent it to my buddy when he needed a cap lifter and he was blown away that it is nearly 100 years old. I have made a bunch of customs and repaired many others in the last few months and this was the biggest project to date. Making scales is a whole new area I look forward to exploring. I am working on a Sm. Climber with LNF now so maybe I’ll do a thread on those repairs if anyone cares to see it.

100 years and counting.  That is a heck of a survivor thanks to you and all those hands its been in over the past century.  I love to think about a knifes journey to me.  What its seen and done and by whom.  The original purchaser/owner and their excitement upon getting it. 

I for one would love to see another documented rehab.

Thank you. That is exactly what draws me to old knives, thinking about the places they could have been and the events that transpired. This knife came from a junk drawer lot in California so it is entirely possible this was used during the war or brought back after wards. Anything is possible.

I posted a pic somewhere else and was told “that’s the worst restoration I’ve ever seen, it looks like it’s 100 year old” or something like that to which I replied thank you, that’s exactly what I was going for.

Thanks for the kind words and encouragement. I’ll do some more threads like this in the next few weeks as I have a long list of knives to repair.  :tu:

Everyone has a comment on how something should have been done  :D.  To take a knife and keep it from the landfill is a deed worthy of  :cheers:.  If someone wants to bring it back to full glory all shiny and new  :tu:.  I appreciate how far you took your project. 

There was a time when I polished all the character out of things.  I no longe do that but I understand the thinking.   To each their own path.

I just thought it was funny. It depends on the knife there are times when I try to make them look new but when they have significant, honest wear such as these blades it looks better looking old to me.
