    Since the custom shop isn't taking on new work, does anybody make custom knife handles for busse knives?

    Josh at REK is the first one to pop up in my mind.
    You can always drill out the tubes and replace with torx screws and then get your own handle material and give it a go.
    Hope this helps.

    I'll check him out. And yeah I was thinking about doing it myself. I have all the tools available to make new ones. Idk why I'm reluctant to do so.

    If you get a gold membership or at least one with pm’s. You can contact him through BF. Otherwise search his name to find one of his postings, and post in thread to contact him.

    Cool!

    It's not my knife, it's his knife here for a sheath.

    I made these for my personal use :D. In the process of making another set with the same material for a friend. I might explore with some other material next time. I've made my own micarta before too our of jeans. It's a lot of work but looks sweet.

    Nice! Those are awesome! Good work! I decided I am going to try my hand at making my own. So we'll see how it goes.
