Folders

Folders pose a unique challenge, a melding of strength and delicacy. Working with the hardest of materials to the smallest of tolerances. The contrast of working space age titanium and 20,000 year old mammoth tooth where thousanths of an inch matter.Folders truly are the next evolution on the journey.

Amber Stag Two Blade Trapper

Amber Stag Two Blade Trapper

Blades and back springs are CPM154 The body with its integral double bolsters is 416 stainless. The centre liner is 410 stainless.

Whalemouth Slip Joint

Whalemouth Slip Joint

This started out as a Nessie pattern but over time I think it has evolved. It now looks more like a Whalemouth. So from this day forward this will be the Whalemouth pattern for me. Does that make sense to you? Can you see it? I seem to write the same things most of the time: Blade and back spring are CPM154, the body with the integral front bolster is 416 stainless steel and the covers are Bark Mammoth Ivory. And as usual sport the Dellana Dot grip system. Closed length is 3 1/2", open is just a hair under 6".

All Jade SLip Joint

All Jade SLip Joint

Hmmm, I wonder if that would work? I wonder how many times that has been the beginning of something special? That is essentially what happened here. I have read that jade is an amazing stone, so tough that it has been used as the head of a golf club. I have no idea if that is true but it got me thinking that, if it is that tough , then I should be able to make a knife with solid jade handles. So I tried it. This is a Slip Joint knife, also known as your old fashioned jack knife. It is 3 1/4" closed 5 3/4" open. The blade and back spring are 154CPM.

Maroon Micarta Slip Joint

Maroon Micarta Slip Joint

This is the first of the isolation knives. I thought I would try a couple of new things. This is the first knife with a shield inlay-ed into the handle. I had to look up which side to put it in. This is also the lightest folder I have ever made. It weighs only 1.7 oz. And since I am going to use lighter steel for the next one it should be even lighter. There are no washers or relief of the liners. The bushing is 2/1000 of an inch thicker than the blade so that should ensure no binding but I can already see minute scratches on the ricasso so I guess I will need to relieve the insides. There are no liners on here either. I figured I would try it without since the micarta is stable enough it shouldn't be a problem. It is 3 1/4" closed and 5 3/4" open. The blade and back spine are 154CPM and the body is Maroon Canvas Micarta. It has a full half stop and is flush in all three positions. $250USD delivered
