    glad you like it
    its made from N690 (Bohler steel's version of 440c with extra tungsten)

    recurve grind,fileworked and handrubbed to 1500 grit
    OAL 5" 127mm BL 2" 50mm thickness 5/32" 4mm



    took the extra time to file and polish all the finger curves to a
    nice friendly profile... it can be held in many ways,using blade up or down etc
    or like a small paring knife grip

    I have had a good reaction from everyone
    so I will look at making a few of these (dozen max)
    (one at a time) in the future
    I also have some nice 440c in 1/4' 7mm thick stock which would be really nice for this type of style

    I will try to keep the cost down but don't really know what end price will be
    genuine suggestions would be most welcome


    I will make one for anyone who asks me here if they really want one
    let me know

    Only suggestion I can make is to perhaps offer a neck sheath for it when you make a few of those. Combination jewelry and handy knife.

    thanks ... yes I was going to try to make something decorative
    from wood or leather
    with just the end ring exposed it can be used as a bottle opener
    keeping the blade protected
    but still look like a neckchian totem/symbol

    thanks ToolFool

    there has been a lot of interest in these...
    someone else here has expressed a need for many of these

    I will look into making more if there are some more requests




    I am very busy with orders for the next 2 weeks
    and I am going to a bladesmith symposium for a week from 28 Aug

    but I will also be on holidays for 2 extra weeks
    this will mean a nice fast turnaround for orders taken


    cheers Jason

    Jason,

    The more I look at it, the more I wish it was a bluer color to
    match the bottom of the spy. I'm not too familiar with the material
    used. Would someone be able to anodize it into a blueish color fairly
    easily? Just wondering

    Thanks!

    Ray

    Agreed. Absolutely agreed. Although the only knives I have are in the kitchen

    I PM'd you by the way about a knife I'm looking for. I don't mind the non-correspondence. Have fun at the symposium!

    Being the lucky recipient of this one, a few thoughts from me. The knife is N690, just under 5 mm thick. Made to my specs, edge is 64 mm, OAL 113 mm. His pics are better than I could ever do, so for good looking picture, see his post.

    The aim of this design was a knife that looked good, but was geared towards a scalpel grip, and it definitely delivers. Most of the details are there to help with the scalpel grip. Filework on the spine of the blade for the index finger, the three holes for the thumb, the jimping on the underside helps as well. So the harpoon tip might be redundant given the filework on the spine, but I still like it. There was a bit of back and forthing with sizes and all, but it was worth it, the knife fits almost perfectly in my hand.

    Oh, and the bottle opener on the handle. It works. Who says alcohol and knives don't mix? The other knives Jason made in this style all had 3 finger grips, and the bottle opener was on the other side. When I asked him for a 2 finger grip, I also asked for the opener to be moved to the other side, so that when I did open bottles, my fingers would be pressing on the spine, instead of pressing the sheath (or my fingers!) into the edge. Not so sure if it's a problem on the bigger handle, but on this one, very good decision.

    Came with a neck sheath as well:



    Overall, an excellent little knife that works well for what I do, and looks good as well.

    Finning does help dissipate heat. This is why the fins are removed before cooking fish. Otherwise it will throw off the heat and not reach the proper cooking temperature. --Duglite

    are you allowed small fixed blades?
    I thought they were ok under 3"
    thanks for the comments

    and thanks to Th232 for your feedback
    I am glad we could make this together
    the idea of creating the ideal knife for a customer is added complication but very much worth it for the end user and gives me the satisfaction of making someone the ideal knife
    I don't usually take orders because I like to let my design ideas flow as they come to me

    I think we can carry less than 3'' fixed but we mostly all live in urban settings compared to the others in our community here. I feel a bit weiered having a knife on my belt going to work and a fixed blade in my pocket is just asking for trouble I'm a folder through and through and already had a nice frame lock confiscated trying to get on a ferry. The van in front had a chainsaw in his van. My dinky folder, in my picknic bag, was confiscated. How I laughed!

    that really sucks

    the small fixed blade knives I make are ideal for pocket carry
    I also have a couple of nice neck knives in damascus patterns coming very soon
    If you want I will post a few other small fixed blade knives
    some older ones sold and other available blades

    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.

    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

    Sorry to say guys, for an EDC in the UK it would have to be a sub 3 inch slipjoint.

    For more details check the laws area of the britishblades.com forum.

    Gollum - I thought I'd seen a photo of a slipjoint made by you?
