First Rehandle

I bought an old Homestead knife off Ebay for $11 including shipping.  The handle was in such bad shape I decided to try and rehandle it myself.  I don't have any Wa handled knives so that is what I decided to use.  Since the knife was so cheap and figured I wasn't out much if I screwed it up.  But I think it turned out pretty nice, and the knife has taken a very keen edge.

Original handle:


Tang after scales were removed:


Tang after grinding to the depth of the wa handle:


Finished and sharpened knife:

Thanks Dsanchez2503, but I'm not the one you would want to rehandle your knives.  I am worse than a rank amateur.  There are people on here that would do you a very good job. Maybe someone more knowledgeable can give you some suggestions.
