I mean handle/tang. I was thinking I would just fill it with wax or something. I'm not in love with the resin/plastic ferrule either.

Actually, Taz, you were the first person to come to mind about this knife to do some work on it, but, I'm not sure that I am going to keep it yet.

Yup, melting wax in there would work, or some 5 minute epoxy in the gap to fill it in and seal it.

Would squirting in glue from a glue gun work?

That should work Rayong to seal it! Is glue gun glue waterproof? If not, it may come out eventually after several washings of the knife with hot water. The JB Kwik Weld is thick and waterproof and sets up quickly, but isn't very removeable. 30 minute 2 part epoxy or a 5 minute waterproof epoxy work well, but are thinner, so when you fill the gap, the epoxy will seep down into the handle/wood more, so you may have to do it a few times to get the epoxy flush with the ferrule.

Glue gun glue is waterproof but it's not very durable. Ie it dislodges easily. But then it depends on how far it gets down the hole. It comes of cleanly though so when it's time to rehandle, its easy to get out.

I would skip glue gun glue as it doesnt really adhere to anything. If you want a permanent seal go with some NON-gel epoxy.

I got mine a few days ago and thought the sharpness OTB was good, honed it on a ceramic rod, and it was good to go. Went through an onion and a pound of mushrooms real good with minimal sticking. For the price I think it can't be beat. I don't particularly care for the handle though, a bit too fat, and the tang has gaps around it in the ferrule. Using a pinch grip worked fine, but I just shipped mine off to Matt for a rehandling anyway, looking forward to getting it back.

It isn't practical but experimental scalpels have been made of it.
I've seen some "caveman" knives made of it.

Sorry? It's not. Of the stainless steels, it's got some of the smallest carbides. That's why it is so popular in kitchen knives.

Think you're referring to 13c26 also known as AEB-L. 19C27 is larger carbide. However, having said that I find it takes a fairly nice edge.
