How do I rejoin a stainless knife

Block Image

I have a set of stainless cutlery and the knives are two parts (the blade and a handle). Several of the knives have come apart. I have tried several different glues but none seem to work. The finished product must be able to withstand washing (hopefully in a dishwasher). Any suggestions?

Update (11/05/23)

I tried this but because the area where the glue goes is not exposed to air, the glue didn't seem to 'set'.

@susankriger post some picture of what your original handles look like. There might be a few ways of fixing those Aggiungere immagini ad una domanda


@oldturkey03 Nice find, I had no idea there was a product that specialized.

@susankriger that's absolutely the best thing you can probably get to fix your cutlery.


@dadibrokeit only knew it because I was told by my wife to fix our knife handles a couple of years ago. I remember that I used a 3M epoxy product because I felt this particular one was a bit high priced for the few knives we had. As you already figured out, I am frugal (cheap) ;-)

Hi Susan,

I take it the knives were originally held together with glue rather than a mechanical bond like rivets, right?

Given that assumption, you're looking for a glue that will hold up to heat and water. I'd say you probably want a two part epoxy for that job; as far as I know that's the best glue you can get for your particular application. That's the kind where you have to mix together two different liquids that make up the glue.

After your Nov 5 2023 update Jerry's answer is still good. 2 part epoxy does not need air to dry to be a good glue. The 2 parts react chemically to form a strong glue. No air is needed.
