11/11/2013 – This weekend I finally managed to provide the below burnisher that came with a skinning knife I used in The Land of the Long White Cloud with a handle.
I simply drilled a hole in the handle and stuck the burnisher in there with a liberal supply of epoxy.
Next I did the same with a short piece of copper pipe to create an easy way of hanging the burnisher.
Once the epoxy was set I tidied up the protruding pipe, chamfered the sharp inside edges, …
… treated the handle with tung oil and Wooddock … and Bob’s your Uncle.
I use this burnisher predominantly to created a bur on the cutting edge of my Lie-Nielsen card scrapers.
