What started off as a question ‘could you refurbish my old K-Sabatier knives?’ turned into one of the most difficult things I’ve done with knives to date.
First of all they were in a pretty disheveled state.
The handles were broken in several places from years of repeated cleaning in a dishwasher.
Never a good idea for knives with wooden handles people.
Secondly, they were badly rusted (same reason) and I was guessing the rivets had rusted at the male/female connection points so wouldn’t ‘pop’ when a bit of elbow grease was to be applied.
But nevertheless – challenge accepted.
The old scales came away pretty easy, but yup – the rust was worse than I’d first feared.
The rivets on the other hand could not be popped and saving to reuse wasn’t an option.
So out came the angle grinder to trim them off.
For the rust I used the same method and ground them down to a decent finish.
