New G10 Handle for a Henckel’s Carving Knife.



The above Henckel carving knife has seen many trips to the dishwasher.  I was asked to replace the handle with an updated material.  The handle material is G10 reinforced fiberglass.  It makes excellent handle material.  The old wood handle needs to be replaced.




Once removed, the fun begins.  



Two observations at this point.  The countersink holes I drilled in the G10 for the rivot heads were too big.  The rivot head did not fit flush and tight in the countersink hole.  Second observation, G10 makes an unbelievable fine dusty mess when shaped with a grinder.  Mask and goggles are a must for this operation.  G10 is easy to drill and shape but makes for a nasty work space.



The knife handle looks good and is ready for many more trips to the dishwasher.


I am an Assistant County and District Attorney at the Ellis County District Attorney's Office. On November 20, 2017, Comedian Bert Kreischer inspired me to start a weight loss journey. I started this journey at 475 pounds. Through Bert's support, Professional Wrestling Hall of Famer and Fitness Legend, Diamond Dallas Page reached out to me and changed my life. DDP Yoga and Nutrition under Dallas' guidance keeps the weight falling off of me and increases the quality of my daily life, every day. I started this podcast and blog to personally track my journey but to also interview other extra usual individuals. Those that inspire, teach, help, create, invent, discover, or are simply interesting. A lawyer for 24 years, I see negativity and conflict daily. I want to be part of something positive and inspiring. This is my outlet, my journey, my mid-life crisis, my future. If you know someone inspiring to you, let me know. I will interview this person, maybe he or she will inspire us all. Thanks. Vance
