REMOVAL OF THE GHURKA HANDLE
The Ghurka handle is riveted in place, and the rivets will need to be drilled on one side and then driven out with a punch and hammer as shown in the diagram below.
Once the pins are removed, the handle can be tapped free with the hammer.
NOTE: Unless you plan on making your own handle, you should not remove these, as it is easier to reshape the existing handles while they are still attached.
