Hi,

Does anyone know what kind of glue is used to bind the various components (wood, leather, antler) in a composite construction puukko handle?

Thanks,

Ian

Just a normal high strength epoxy, 5 minute or 30 minute epoxy is most common I think. Almost any craft/hobby shop should carry it.

I'd go with the 30 minute to give yourself more time to work.
