Best tool to use to cut off silver-weighted knife handles? Answered
Ok so I have a project from time to time.. I find sterling silver .925/1000 knives that have weighted handles. Weighted means that the handle of the knife is a covering of silver surrounding a filler (ceramic, plaster, resin, sawdust) and the filler keeps the stainless steel blade in place.
I currently use a Dewalt bench grinder with a abrasive blade attached to slice open the silver handle and then I have to split it open and break out the filler.
I have heard of a Diamand bladed tile saw.. I have no experience with one.. any suggestions?
