These knives are generally of good steel and IMO are well worth fixing, which I've done over the years on a wholla bunch of them..

As for leather washers you can make them or buy them pre-made

For removing rust you can also use naval jelly or even better then sand

here's one I did a few years ago - it was in real sad shape and I saved as much as possible of the original since it belonged to the gents grand dad........replaced the original handle with antler and glued it all together to prevent future problems

The beautiful sheaths created for storing the knife elevate the knife one step higher. It celebrates the knife it houses.
