    It seems that when you are looking for something in the shop/garage you usually find something that has been shoved in the drawer years ago.

    It happened to me today while looking for a long lost pair of scissors I used for cutting steelhead eggs into small clusters. I found the old Uncle Henry SS Steelhead fillet knife # 168 (now #167UH) that had broken at the handle 16 years ago.

    Now that the scissors are finally located I would like to know if there are any knife makers/manufactures/miracle workers out here that can fix my beloved old fillet knife?

    I figure that my old friends demise (ok it's a tool but it was joined to my hip for over 16 years fishing the PNW) was a conspiracy on the part of all the distant steelhead and salmon relatives that had been filleted over the years (hundreds maybe thousands)(yes I fished A LOT) and I take particular disdain for the cowardly act!!!

    Thanks in advance kind Sirs or Madame's.

    I had some repair work done by a jewelers located between second and fourth on SW oak downtown Portland. (can't remember their name) I'll see if I can find it if you ask. They have laser welding and soldering capability on a small scale. Any normal welding would ruin the temper and your handle as would have my repair work reattaching a steel pin to a silver and turquoise buckle.
    This may be possible though it likely cost sixty to 100 bucks and not cost effective albeit love makes fools of us all.
