How to make pitch

Making pitch

I want to learn how to make pitch to be used as glue to hold on knife handles. I have no idea where to begin. Can you help?

Also, can you tell me something about the 'qualities' of pitch please.

Is it brittle, meaning would it fail as a fixitive, or is it flexable and tough and how does it perform as a fixitive to wood, metal and bone?

I don't really want to use modern fixatives. I would much rather learn the 'old ways'. Can anyone recommend a tutorial or a good book?
Some glues and resins go brittle and fail after time (several years), does pitch do the same?



In the great mirror of time man will see reflections of error. Only when gazed upon in truth will man truly see the way forward
