I have a really old carving set that's come down from my grandfather
to me. The handles have narrow, longitudinal cracks. Can these be
repaired and, if so, how?
I'm worried that using glue and clamping will damage the horn. Any and
all ideas appreciated.
If its old - antique and you mean wood carved, than any unnecessary or
unprofessional repair will reduce their value. Check their value first,
go to an antique shop.
Longitudonal cracks dont mean reduced strength or mean repairs are
necessary or desired. After all , its probably an antique , age is
what sells and is desireable.
