I'm open to other responses, but I'm directing this question to Tim, since he uses JB Kwik Weld to attach handles, and that's what I'll be using on this project.
So...I knocked the oval handle off my Kajihara KU Gyuto and I want to install it on the Goko W#1 240 that should be on my doorstep today
After the trial fitting and adjustment on the Goko, I'd like to know some specifics of the JB epoxy application. Do you put some on the tang as well as in the handle slot? What do you do about excess epoxy getting squeezed out during the install. (TAZ, you're probably good enough at this that it doesn't usually happen
. How do you apply the epoxy into the handle slot?
Any tips would be appreciated.
