  1. https://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t50.2886-16/19417100_451013468595402_8621710147330244608_n.mp4 A fun project I've been working on; an entirely W2 construction. This one requires a good deal of force to open and close. Ideally it would be worn in a sheath already in locked position, and the folding aspect is to keep it street legal.
  2. So, saw 556mp's version of a gary huston folder, and had to try it. Need to clean it up a little and put a finish on it. Blade was an inch and a half or so of an old file. (left some of the tooth marks, but not as cool as i had hoped.) Handle was some mild steel from part of the sign from when i moved in here two years ago, and the rivet is a bit of stainless from a pegboard peg I cut down. Blade locks pretty good between springiness of handle and friction from rivet. Normalized thrice, hardened in veggie oil, and tempered to straw....except for the very point which got a little warm and was more towards plum. Close enough for a cool if slightly crude....I mean rustic pocketknife. Biggest pain was blade pushed against handle enough to make really hard to open at the begining.......only after the rivet was set. Lots and lots of filing to set right. http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/37508-folder1/ http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/37509-folder2/ http://www.iforgeiron.com/gallery/image/37510-folder3/

  6. Hello there! Long time no see. I have been busy with studying this year so havent been able to work in the forge proparly since summer! (yes it IS killing me ) But I´ve finally had the chance to dust off my anvil and start a new project! First one out is a folder, now this style of knife (folder) is totaly new to me, but found a picture on the web of a beatuiful arceological find and just had to try it. Well enough of my babling, heres some pics The blade is made of a bandsaw from the garbagebinn at my studyingplace and the wood is from a pallet my dad piced up somewhere, looks like some kind of excotic wood, smells like peppermint. made the little spacer in the back of brass and the pins are (i hope) stainless steel. GOD it´s good to be back in the forge again Hope you like it and take care! -Jens
