Good video, looking forward to Part 1:fitting the handle to the tang. I recently tried fitting a handle to a Konosuke 240 Fuji blade I ordered and could not get the spine and handle to line up straight.I did not want to screw it up so I sent it to TAZ the "Handle Master"to be fitted perfectly. Let's see your tricks of the trade!

As an apprentice (mech/elec eng.) I was taught how to fit file handles by burning them on. We would drill a pilot hole, sometimes with two diameters to accommodate the tapered tang. Diameters were approximately the 'across flats' dimensions. We would heat the tang to somewhere less than cherry red (I don't recall if there was a trick to it or we just guessed), then push it into the handle until it was fully seated. Then we pulled them apart and quenched the tang before reassembling with a moderate tap to secure. When done properly, these would never come loose without using a technique like that shown in chocolatecurry's video. No glues required.
Will be interested to see Mark's video on this method.

We did a quick video on burning in a handle. I'll post it in a few minutes.

Thank you, CKTG. I guess I have a new project to take on. Yay... another subject to study ad nauseam. :roll: G-d knows I have to take over on this portion of my cutlery cathexis. That choil to ferrule gap & spine to wa alignment is so paramount to a pleasurable cutlery experience that 1mm or 1 degree make a difference to me. Sometimes I even annoy myself... :evil:
