Restoration of an Old Norwegian Knife [No Power Tools]

Finally I have hands on an old norwegian knife which is perfect for restoration! In today’s video I will be restoring this rusty Norwegian knife. Whole process was quite long, longer then what I expected. I haven’t used power tools and I guess that is why took longer time. I started with a sanding with several different sandpaper grits. Some of what I used are: 180, 240, 320, 600 grit.

This is how knife looks before restoration.

Then I used several different types of files for metal part and wooden part. After removing old handle, I have marked for new one, cut it in wanted shape and use chisel (sharpen screwdriver was handy) to make a groove for the knife to fit in. Glued everything together and left to dry overnight. Next step was to give better shape to the new handle and make it symmetrical. So far, so good, handle is ready to be coated with oil to protect the wood. Best part in this restoration project was
sharpening and cutting that paper at the end. With that result I know I did good work.
