Tang-To Style Knife

Not so long ago, I gave light how to make a handle for a knife from cold welding. Some "critics" asked - why sawdust? I answer; I used sawdust for a larger volume, as well as to reduce the weight of the handle, and to save cold welding. A monolithic handle of clean cold welding would have weighed pretty well, and it would have split at the first, more or less, heavy load (pressure) on it, for example, when cutting off a branch from a tree. A second glue so that the sawdust, mixed with glue, grabbed the knife pin. However, I got pretty tired of this handle. And I decided to follow the advice of one of our respected commentators; that if you put the blade pin in clean glue, without admixture of sawdust and second glue. But in order to have a stable and durable handle, I decided not to risk it, and to apply the border in the form of a case for cold welding. That it does not burst when pressed, at the most inopportune moment. For one thing, I'll tell you how to soften superglue.

It will take

  • A piece of metal-plastic tube (20 millimeters in diameter)
  • Cold welding .
  • Self-adhesive film (with any,
  • Scissors.
  • A stationery knife.
  • A shoe from a shoe.
  • Kiyanka.

So, to soften the second glue, you need to drop acetone mixed with vinegar, in proportion one to one , wait half an hour, until acetone-acetic fluid penetrates into all the cavities and air bubbles that formed during gluing, and will dissolve the glue. Next, lower the product into a soapy solution consisting of a Comet dishwashing detergent (full of ten bottles of syringe) and a teaspoon of soda diluted in a glass of water. After the glue softens, pull out the blade from the handle. Knife in the style of Tan then The handle can be made from anything ... from wood, plastic, from plexiglass ... But if you have a long and thin blade, it's best to do it in the form of "Tan That." This form of knife is universal. It is suitable for any purpose. From the insertion of the wiring harness, to cleaning the potatoes. And, especially, for this a lot of effort is not required. You need only a little patience until the glue "cold welding" dries. First preparefuture case. For this we need a metal-plastic tube. Measure the distance of the length of the blade, cut off the desired piece. Now hilt. Take a piece of metal-plastic pipe in your palm, and mark the distance convenient for you with a marker. We flatten the future handle with a wooden mallet to the oval. Next, stir the glue "cold welding" (you will need the entire piece that will be in the tube), we wrap the knife pin with it and immediately place it in the tube prepared for the handle.

Now let's take the scabbard. We hammer the tube-sheath with glue, lubricate the knife blade with gun oil (it can also be used with vegetable oil!) And stick the knife into the case. Install it so that the handle and cover were like a continuation of each other. We wait until it dries.

Only one minus for such a variation is that the knife can be returned to the case only in a certain position. It remains only to glue all this sticky film.At first, I wanted to apply a black film, but after thinking about it, I decided that the texture under the tree would be more interesting.
