    Handle question

    I have recently received a fixed blade knife. The end of the handle is like a two pronged fork. I plan to make a stacked leather handle but am not sure how to cap the end. Any suggestions ? Thanks, Dan

    Straighten rib bone ?

    My brother gave me a rib bone from a cow that he found while out hunting. I decided to split he rib and cut it up into useable sized pieces but they have a slight curve to them. Is it possible to cook the bone and then clamp it to straighten it out? Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks, Dan
