I would do some aluminum or brass pins 3 of them to fit the slot and use epoxy and a clamp to make sure they don't come off or get moisture under them. u can use aluminum or stainless welding rods to make your pin it's cheep or buy some round bar an cut it to length. If u need pm me ill help if I can.

Cool thanks. I'll give it a shot. Reading this thread got me to pull out that old blade and work on its handle. At some point in its past they got gone ( before I got it ), and someone thought it'd be a good idea to rebuild em outta wood putty.

Check it out, Griffin...I don't know if you planned it this way, but this thing is incredibly well balanced. And the "cool factor" is pretty much off the chart.

Chandler, I'm glad u like it. I played with it a bit to try to get a good feel and balance to it. They have to have that comfortable in the hand feel before I can send them to u guys. I hope you get some good use out of It and let me know what the guys from work think of it.

play the victim, be the victim
