I Forge Iron

Huston-ish folder

Recommended Posts

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.
