I received a skinning knife as a gift and the scales have been sloppily coated with a poly. It covers the scales, tang and a little of the base of the blade.
Any tips are greatly appreciated. Is there a way to refinish this? What type of wood do you think it is. It is from a Texas knife maker and the knife looks quality, except for the scales...
I am skilled enough to tackle most projects, but my knife experience only goes as far as using and sharpening.
Any thought and recommendations are greatly appreciated.
