Picked these handles up
« on: March 21, 2017, 04:58:14 AM »
Picked these handles up with a satin lined case they are going to be a fancy matching bowie and dagger set with 6" blades. Track has the blades in carbon steel and the nickel silver guards. Will somewhat "age" the blades to match the handles and case

I now have about eight different cutlery style handles in different sizes pus Ivory and Stag ones from old antique sets to make new knives from

Those are very ornate handles.   Will you leave them as is,  or shine them up and let them slowly tarnish again?    They will make a unique set when you get them done.

Probably leave as is. Looks like they have selective  gold plating in some areas and silver in others

I like the case also they use a padded bulge down the center of the lid to keep the two knives apart I am going to use that in another case I am relining for another set
