Hi Sergey!
That knife turned out great!
I like the look of the bone handles with no pins. Have you had any problems with the “pinless” knife handles coming loose?
Thanks for sharing your technique with us.

When I glued fist time at this knife by уpoxy - something going wrong. I use Slow Cure 30 min epoxy from US. Maybe it was so old, maybe i forgot degrease. But second time I used waterproof cyanocrilate. Also it is my first handle without pins :D I have not have enough statistic for this time. But I trust to knives assembled with pins more than glued 8) Modern chemistry do not stay at one place and always found something new. But this knife would be in my pocket and tested by life.

Thank you for the response Sergey.
I pin all of my handles but recently bought some new epoxy that’s made specifically for knife handles so I may try a few with no pins to see how they hold up.
It does look nice without the pins!

If it ain't broke, you're not trying!
