    You did a lovely job Semo as Schrades Swindon key system is a pain to work on ,as is colonial's patented bolster design, it's the reason I prefer working on more traditional pin through design pocket knives , it's great bringing old knives back to life ,it's one of my favourite jobs I do in my shed for myself and others .

    Stole an old bone scale from a beater scout knife to restore this old Imperial to a new life.
    The scout now has two broken scales, but this one has a new chance for pocket time.

    You appear to be pretty good at this. Hobby, or business?

    Just a hobby. I have repaired a few for others, but mainly just what I come across myself.
