    Nice relic,
    It may be possible to take it to a proffesional knife repairer and get the blade replaced.Trouble is you would have to obtain another one in which to do so and might not be cost effective.Still you may find one that has a damaged or missing handle pretty cheap.Even if you don't it's a nice item to keep from your Grandfather.
    Good luck with it

    Hi John..I would leave the knife well enough alone..any more changes to it by trying to repair or upgrade will detract any value left in it. Its History as it is

    I concur with Larry, although not in the best condition it s got history on it and IMO it should stay like this

    A 7 year old thread that some new member posted his only post on?
    Which is more or less not understandable anyways. (even more)
    The original poster has not logged in since 2010, so I don't think we need to worry too much about what he is going to do with his knife.
