I use JB Weld if having a black grey glue isn't a problem or I use West Systems G-Flex epoxy glue. And if you have a customer who insists upon putting his kitchen knives in the dishwasher you want ole JB, it's rated to 600 degrees. My brother used JB over 20 years ago to keep his rear fender on his truck and it's still stuck on there. He half expects it to fall off, but laughs because it is the only fender that doesn't rattle.

The 2 glues set up in 30 min for the JB and 45 mins for the G-flex. Don't use 5 min epoxy ever and the reason I use the expensive g-flex is because it supposedly isn't engineered to begin to fail in 30 years. Of course I use loveless screws on my handles beside just pins.

I use Super glue and have for years, with great results. Glue one slab into place. When it's set up, drill from the other side of the tang, then glue the 2nd side on and when set up, drill through the other slab. It helps if you to use a vise on your drill table that will hold the knife blade horizontally.I use Corby screws. Glad you're back in the business.

How are you doing?
