If you're unsure how to fix the handle feel free to mail it back to me and I'll take care of it for you. It's easy to epoxy back on.

Several comments on that video:

1. That's the way to do it safely for some knives
2. If you don't want to scratch the piss out of your knife, tape it up with blue painters tape
3. That method doesn't always work. Some handles are either epoxied/glued in or some are so warped that that method won't work.
4. If that method doesn't work.....chisel and hammer or saw or belt grinder.

I was surprised a vice wasn't involved. I'm gonna look into making my own handle. Thanks a ton guys!
