  1. This locking liner has a forged blade made of 1.2513, some steel rarity, that is not produced since the mid 70's.It was used to produce the ignition wheels of lighters, to mention one of its purposes. This could make it appropriate showing up in a forging forum. so we have 1.2513 for the blade with 93 mm in length, 6Al4V titanium for the liners, spring, clip and other mechanical parts are all made from high carbon spring steel and the handle slabs are made from Padouk root( Pterocarpus Macrocarpus). Overall length measures 210 mm.
  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
