Custom Folder

Recommended Posts

This is my first locking folder.  My brother helped me with all the steps. I am making three more just like it, but with different scales.  

Steel: 1/8 154-CM

Brass liner and bolster

Died bone scales

I still need to put in the mosaic pins this week and will post a finished photo. 

Very smooth and locks perfectly.  Blade pivots on a stainless bushing.  

OAL = 5.125

Blade 2.125

It's is a unique design.  It's meant to be a little folding skinner.  With a blade and handle similar to an old time sheep skinner.  Somewhat like a canoe or butterbean design. Very handy little knife.  Here is a photo of the finished knife with the mosaic pins.  Just put them in this evening. 

For your viewing pleasure the second photo shows the large folder my brother made for me 12 years ago next to the little model.
