Description: This is a rehandle job that was done for a customer on Kitchen Knife Forums. The customer sent in a really beautiful stabilized oak burl slab of wood and asked that I clean up the blade and rehandle it to make it a bit more dramatic. He wanted me to keep the handle fairly true to the original Foster Brothers handle, but make it a bit more round.
The blade needed quite a bit of cleanup. Someone had taken it to a grinder at some point and so there were marks along the blade. I reground and satin finished the blade, keeping as much of the maker's mark as possible. I was really pleased that the mark was nearly unaffected. I left the last hints of divots left behind from oxidationů we didn't want to make this look like a new knife! While I was working on the blade, I decided to round the spine and sharpen it so that it would be ready to go.
Once the original handle slabs were off, there was a bunch of rust underneath. I cleaned that off so that the handle wouldn't rust from the inside, though we wanted to keep the tang solid to help balance the weight of the long blade. The handle kept the rectangular shape of the Foster Bros. knife. The customer didn't want sculpting, other than to make it rounded. I left the handle relatively robust, since this is a knife style that tends to be used for a long time. To my hand, it was a pretty perfect size. I chose brass hidden bolt rivets and a central mosaic rivet that combined brass and copper. I felt this went well with the natural tones of the stabilized oak burl.
