The fortune cookie

Recommended Posts

A very close and old friend came south-east for a visit and stayed a month....it was a great time, like in our younger days.

We celebrated it with a folder for him, he made the design and I made the knife.

Cold work Tungsteen tool steel for the 8,5 cm long blade, 6Al4V springy hard titanium for the liners, clip and all mechanical parts are high carbon spring steel and some unknown hardwood root for the handle slabs.

Cheers

Another beautiful knife Templehound! Very nice. I also like that the pocket clip is positioned "correctly".

Looks like it would be a great knife in the hand with it thicker towards the pinky. The unknown hardwood root has a nice color to it. 

It's great catching up with old friends and what a fine gift.

Your work is infuriating. Between work, family, other time commitments, and my current level (or lack) of skill, I know that my ever getting to the point that I could make anything half as nice as one of your knives is extremely unlikely.

Keep 'em coming!

amazing work as always. what do you do to get that faded blueing look?

I gun blue the whole blade then I take a rag and cover the parts that should remain and then sisal polish it lengthwise.

Cheers
