    So-- I have been lucky enough to find a original Pommel for #6-I have been lucky enough to find a replacement---Weyersburg #126. So, now I have to get the frozen Eick pommel off--Wagner-suggested I soak the pommel in Liquid wrench to loosen it up-----

    Looking Good there Wiki. Don't forget a few sharp taps to the pommel in between soaks.

    Congrats on finding a Weyersberg pommel.

    I would be afraid that the Liquid wrench could be harsh on the grip.. especially if it is on the grip for an extended time! Discolor it or break down the celluloid.. have you tried a hair dryer on the pommel? That has worked for me a few times and no chemicals. Kevin.

    Kevin - Tried the hairdryer-- Nothing! The level of the liquid wrench is right at the top of the pommel- So I am hoping nothing will go wrong! But I am worried about the celluloid----Stressing!!!

    I agree with heers68 on this one. WD 40 was used as an Jet engine preservative for years until it was found to evaporate and leave a nasty brownish sticky residue. It is hydrated/water and when the water evaporates this was found. Now this was military use and it took years before this was found out and since this discovery it was no longer used. I would make a type of heatsink/shield that would protect the grip but allow you to apply heat to the pommel directs. But keeping in the temp that will not damage the celluloid.

    I was a major fan of WD until I found this out with first hand experience while I was into making knives.

    Keep doing the 'back n' forth' twist. then soak, then twist, then repeat. Your almost home..... YES....GOOD LUCK !

    I think the grip will be OK. Good thing the pommel was to be replaced anyway.
    I can't wait to see your new pommel mated on this lovely dagger.

    I hope it does turn out well because I'm talking about my 30 years of using WD and this info was share to me by a Jet engine mechanic/tech that was 20 years my senior. I'm not worried about the pommel but the celluloid grip changing colors when the WD soaks into it. It happens with various material from stone to micarta .
    Wagner have you done this and looked at the material after years of this application and seen no change?
    Just my 2 centavos on this subject.
