I've researched a number of restoration threads now, but most seem to be just replacing the knot, or sometimes some sanding work on the handle. My question is about the two-piece handles. Lots of these old wood/rubber combos are coming apart at the seam. I've even seen some "restored" handles that still had an uneven gap at the union. Is this a difficult thing to tackle? I'm interested in potentially restoring an inherited Hess that is beginning to separate. Thing is, it's solid as a rock otherwise and I'm wondering if I'd be opening up a can of worms. Anyone out there take a handle apart and maybe I missed their thread? Regards.
