    I remember seeing a thread in the past referencing people who 'redo' knives. Long story short, I have a very old kitchen knife that is basically a junk knife but is sentimental to someone in my home because it has been passed down over the years.

    It has a really old, warn out wood handle that I would like to inquire about having replaced / redone. Does anyone know someone who does this that isnt outrageously expensive?

    I thought I would add, the knife is stamped  "Ekco stainless steal".

    Is there a gap between the scales and the tang?

    scale is the wood

    tang is the metal

    If they aren't seperated, you can sand it down and re finish.  No tools required just sandpaper and oil.

    If they are separated you can use laminating epoxy.  It will flow in and fill the gaps.
