I Forge Iron

Recommended Posts

I needed to put a temporary handle on a tool (wood chisel) so I drilled a 3/8 inch hole in a piece of hickory and heated the tang and burned it in. Not overly hot, but hot enough to char the wood. 

I used a wet rag to isolate the heated area. 

Later I had to clamp the tool in a vice and needed to use a hammer to get it off. 

Would this be sufficient to hold a handle on a hidden tang knife ? 
I could pin the handle and use boiled linseed oil to finish the wood.
