yes I actually still have this one
I swore I would make no more of these due to the strain on my eyes and fingers, so I kept one to show at a recent knifemakers get together
price is US$80 plus $5 shipping... I think thats around the 50 quid mark(?)
If you want it my paypal address is firstname.lastname@example.org
not me no slipjoint's just liner locks since 1995
Never say never! Have you ever considered having a go at a slipjoint? Not that I have any money to buy one, just asking. I guess Iím curious from a technical point of view as well (Iím an engineer by trade). I take it the spring /tension/design is a bigger pain in the backside when making a slipjoint??
I did one years ago and it was ok
didn't really like the extra effort involved over a liner lock
I like them
but I prefer linerlocks
I will make a slipjoint again one day
about 3.5" oal silver bolsters bronze liners
carbon steel blade
maybe one day I will do a multi blade
lge main blade
sml back up blade
I am sure we would all love to see more of your work. I remain unconvinced that I need a neck carry or a fixed pocket knife. But your work could convince me . I love this one. Is it for sale?
Keep up the great work.
It is a Liner Lock with Titanium liners,the colours are much more pronounced in real life
all these pics are done on a compact digitrash $250 handheld camera so please excuse the poor quality
first pic shows the nice Stingray pouch ...very solid and tough
it has a neat pocket clip on the back because I dont like clips on knives.
the knife is a nice snug fit because I built layers inside the pouch to accomodate the shape of the handles and the blade profile.
Carbon Fibre is from Blacksite a USA supplier to the Air force ...top quality for jet engine parts etc
it is bronze weave so the sunlight catches golden flecks in a nice subtle way
the Stainless Damascus is a tight twist pattern
cryo heat treated and tempered to 58-60Rockwell hardness
these pics make the blade look dull and the pattern is hardly visible,
the steel is actually as bright as chrome
a closer view of the lock and the filework for grip and asthetics.
the top of the knife has some filework for grip but at different angles to catch the light,the back spacer is in matching damascus
I usually only carry my small keychain knife (shown in my other thread)
so this one is for me to carry.
After many enquiries...
I have been making these for cpf customers exclusively
1st pic was kindly taken by new owner and fwd'd to me
I was too busy to remember
and this one I made earlier
I can offer similar handmade ones for US$120 shipped with trits installed
I will have to order trits from B@rt first (supply can vary) or you can send them to me yourself (please e-mail me)
apart from going away on holidays for 2 weeks next week
I will make these unique handmade beads to your specs if you wish...
price will vary depending on size and trits etc
please only send funds after confirming an order with me
I also have some very limited numbers of damascus steel skulls in a more simple style without trit holes available ... these are much harder to shape and carve and cost is around US$75-$100
I will make these at my own pace and post finished beads only for sale.
after late November I will be back into my workshop for skull bead and knife making orders,I still have some orders to complete
hi jason i like the knifes on page 2 post 32 or post 50 and the carbon handled knife just above on this page post 74 would like one of each or maybe the knifes in post 34 and 50 something similar but would leave the design up to you but relly love the carbon knife and if poss the sheath?when you get back of hols let me know what else is available also...regards darren
I am back from a great holiday...
I will get some pics of available knives and beads soon
and answer any Q's from people who are still after my knives and damascus or mokume skull beads etc...as custom orders
I am trying to get some of B@rts trits but he has no green trits available atm...
therefore no trit skull beads are available until I can get these...
pics below are of what I have right now available...
thanks for looking and let me know here or by P/M for details etc
My skull pick just arrived this morning.
Pictures do not do this piece justice. Almost too nice to use.
Now that I have it, my idea for a case is out the window. Need to up the ante with something more worthy of carrying this.
AND, the Skull with trit eyes is Killer....
