    While cleaning the gun room (see the buy sell & trade forum) I ran across two knifes that need some work done to them one is a worthless home made knife but it was made by my uncle and I would like to have it fixed up needs a polish job and a sheath. the other is a very nice KHYBER skinner and it needs the blade reworked (small nicks) and the sheath belt loop needs to be resewed.
    If you or you know some one that does this type of work please let me know.
    Thanks

    .358Winchester, I just read your post.A little late huh? The leather work is something you can do yourself. Many,many yrs. ago I invested in Tandy leather kit. I have been making my leather goods and fixing them for quite a while. You can get pretty good at it to get by. Along the way you will pick up extra dyes rivets tooling etc. Well worth it! As far as the blades go, I don't know.

    And, I'm even later yet. I can do the work, Ron, but I doubt I would get to it until next Fall. the blades would take only a little time, but the rebuilding/building of the sheaths take more than I'm going to have this Summer. PM me if you are still looking.
