It appears the wood portion is one piece, with the two brass pieces installed over the wood and peened tight using a small brass cap on the end.
Since this knife is not very "old", I could take the option of having the wood portion replaced with a new piece of European walnut and reassemble offering a firm grip. Would not be a difficult job having the old wood as a pattern.
What do you guys think ?
