1970’s Puma Trail Guide that was roached. Scales were broken and it was a pile of rust. I took a deer antler and ground it into dust and mixed it about 90% antler to 10% epoxy. It filled in nicely I think. It was missing some large chunks. I put a forced patina on it after polishing the bad rust off.

I like making new knives but resurrecting one is more satisfying for me.

Good work.

Haven't seen a 'Trail Guide' without a 'fuller' on the blade before?
