What to do with a 135mm Western Petty?

Thu May 22, 2014 11:13 pm

Well I love the knife - a Yoshihiro VG10 petty, but the handle is puny so . . . I found a petty handle with a horn ferrule in my box o handles and a trip to the band saw later . . .

It feels really good in the hand now.

It looks like a good start. I suppose you'll need to grind down the bolster and adjust the depth into the handle. You may [not] need to sand the handle to change the balance point. What I gather from the work you've done before, it will look great!

It's staying the way it is - I like the funk of it. Calling it my Ghetto-Wa. 8-)
