I have an Artifex 240 AEB-L that I had Ken123 thin. In a video he demonstrated how he could thin a blade yet leave
the logo. Very cool because I thought it wouldn't be respectful to Mark to remove it. Also I think it looks cool.

I then sent it to Adam Marr for a handle. Needless to say it was beautiful work. A medium brown maple burl.

Last Thanksgiving I lent it to the in laws ,whom we have Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners with every year. for a month while
I sharpened their knives. I left specific instructions NOT TO PUT IT IN THE DISHWASHER.

Not a full month after Christmas......guess what happened to the beautiful, gorgeous hand fittingly prefect handle???? Go ahead make a guess.

AAAAARRRGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

Not a little crack either.

Because of the relationship, I can't really say anything or kill either one of them but I won't be lending them anything decent EVER again.

I loved that handle :cry: :cry: :cry:

Hope it solves itself, and really sad to hear that.

Let's see it. Maybe it can be saved.

They didn't say anything but I don't think that they thought anything about it.

I'm just assuming they did it because sometimes they put their Wüsthofs in the washer. They're not really knife people.

Bummer

I thought about filling the crack with super glue but it would break up the flow of the burl.

I sending Taz575 some knives for handles this year. Looks like he'll be getting one more.

Thanks for the offer though.

Best

Radar53> Good one.

I wish they weren't such nice people.
I should have known better so I'll put it on me.......on the outside. Inside I'm still p(*&^$ed.

Douglas, use super glue, but immediately after you put the glue on sand it with a 1k grit sandpaper. The dust will mix with the glue and make the continuity of the burl flow better. I would bet no one but you will know where the crack is.

+1 on the CA glue...should be an easy fix...could take more than 1 application, but follow Kaleb's advice and you should be good.
