How to fix a knife handle

Kitchens are the busiest room in the house and where all your culinary magic comes alive. But this is still the kitchen after all, and silly accidents are bound to happen.

Being prepared for those unexpected moments can make all the difference — like when you damage the handle of your favourite knife. With Sugru Mouldable Glue, little accidents like this aren't a big deal, they can just be your next project!

You can fix it yourself in no time.

Here we've used brown Sugru to repair a knife handle that got burnt on the cooker.

Step 1 — Clean and dry the surface of the handle, and remove any loose pieces.

Step 2 — Take a piece of Sugru and roll it between your fingers

Step 3 — Press the Sugru on onto the damaged area and shape it with your fingers

12-24 hours later the Sugru will have turned into rubber, and your trusty tool will be back in action (it might even feel comfier than it used to). Having a good knife can turn a chore into a pleasure, it's not called the most important tool in the kitchen for nothing.

But why wait until something breaks? Sugru can be used for loads of clever little improvements around the home.
