New slipjoint fresh from the bench.

Postby Tony_Wood » Wed Apr 04, 2018 9:36 pm

i have been trying to finish this one for a while.
It went straight from the bench, to a few pics, to a pocket. The owner was at the shop when I put the edge on it.
Not perfect yet, but each one teaches me another lesson. Mostly lessons in the school of patience.

1084 blade and back spring, hand sanded satin finish.
Polished Micarta scales.
Hope you enjoy.

Very cool! The only thing I'm not so sure about is the head of the screw being proud of the handle. I think I would prefer it to be recessed.

That is a very "smart" looking knife. Well done and congratulations.

Very nice looking knife Tony. Looks sleek, kind of like a Shark. What is the closed length?

Thanks all for leaving comments.
TFL, yes, I am still working through the pivot. This is not the end design for me.

I should have a scientific answer, but I don’t.
The bevels were ground until I reached the top of the blade, and the secondary edge bevel was ground by hand.
I do not use any fixtures or jigs. Just hands and eyeballs.
