My latest slip joint knife. I thought the colours and the dark lines reminded me of looking up through the fall branches when the leaves have changed colour but haven't yet fallen.
The knife is 3 1/4" closed and 5 3/4" open. The Blade and back spring are CPM154. The body with the double integral bolsters is 416 with the Dellana Dot grip system.
The insert is Red Lace Agate out of Mexico.

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.
