Western Knife Leather Handle Repair Set With Pommel Block For Sale
This sale is for the Spacer and Pommel Set!!!!
Western began making knives with the
“Bifurcated Tang” in 1931 and continued almost to their final
The Bifurcated Tang is identified by
the steel exposed at the top and bottom of the handle.
Over the years the leather washers dry
out and break, since nobody makes the correct washers, these fine
knives are left with cobbed together handles or simply discarded.
That's a waste of a very good knife.
Gladstone Mfg. Co. is now making the
proper washer to repair your Western Knife, fitted exactly like the
originals, you can buy a set and rebuild the handle.
The Leather Washer Set includes 15 sole
leather washers, enough to replace the existing leather on any of the
Bifurcated Tang Western Knife.
The leather is Vegetable Tanned in the
USA, 12 to 14 ounces thick just like the original handle.
I recommend you use the original color
and brass spacers from your knife as they are usually fine and can
help you determine the right size and shape of the handle as you sand
and polish the new leather.
You will need to remove the original
pinned on pommel, this requires care and proper tools to have a
perfect result. The Washer and Pommel Set includes an Aircraft
Aluminum pommel block much like those used by Western in construction
of the knives.
The Pommel Block is slotted to accept
the ends of the Bifurcated Tang. It is pressed on to compress the
handle leathers. Holes are drilled through the pommel block and tang
for retaining pins. The block is then shaped along with the handle
material for a perfect match.
The Gladstone Pommel Block is longer
than the original allowing you the option of drilling new holes in
the block and tang instead of attempting to match up the originals.
I recommend new holes as it's easier and as effective as the
