  1. Howdy all, I'm back with my newest 3D printed shenanigans. Blade is W2 and pure nickle twisted together, wrought iron spine - can you guess what fellow IFI member inspired the pattern? The frame is printed in plastic then lost-wax style cast in bronze. I designed it so the locking arm is built into the frame. The action is quite smooth, and the release pressure is just where I want it. Several flaws stand out to me about the fit n finish and the action could be tweaked. I am considering a more modern pin; I've had to repin several times to adjust the action. Obviously this is the prototype, so I would love to hear input/critique as I make improvements for a series.

  2. The past couple of months have been nothing but endless work... which just paid off. Wrapped up these two commissions just a couple weeks ahead of the deadline. Also was "promoted" to manager at the day job - hurrah for extra stress. First is a liner lock with a solid 3D printed bronze "chassis". I designed it with internal pockets to reduce weight, but next time I think I'll go even more skeletal. This client requested a beefy handle, so this guy is .8" thick - I call him the "Bronze Beast". I have yet to weigh it, but to me it feels as if I'm holding a full tang. 4.25" handle, 3.25" blade, blade 5/32" thick. I was not smart with this commission; I was so eager to make a fantastic blade I charged him for monosteel and pretty much took a loss on the project. Thankfully, looks like he's getting another blade after this one, so I'll make it work. Here's a lil video https://vine.co/v/eAZurVbO7F3 Second knife is a friction folder razor. Fella intends to use it, but also wanted something pretty. Ended up using a W2 core with left over 1080 and 1050 shell. Jigged bone, translucent G10, and brass pins. Here's some making-of stuff Comments and critique encouraged Theo
  3. Hello again, Another week, another knife. Last week I did my first san mai, so this week I changed the stacking a bit for a more anglo-saxon/seax look (harkens back to my class with Owen Bush). O1 edge material with S5 and mild steel twisted spine for absorbing shock when chopping. The tang goes halfway into the handle, then interlocks with a piece of aluminum so it maintains it's balancing point just above the pointer finger notch - balanced for throwing. I let this etch overnight, so the pattern is deep and distinct. Cocobolo scales with brass fittings and mosaic pin. Keep in mind I have average size hands (last photo). The last two knives went to my consignor (Mastersmiths), but I would like to try and sell this one on my own - any advice in general on trying to get your stuff sold would be appreciated. Also any commentary on the new blade :D Theo
