    2019 KITH Topic Poll

    I like this idea... can we make it 3 to 5 inch? 5 inch is reasonable I think. 4 is good. a switchblade is illegal in all but 3 states anyway...

    KITH 2019?

    Just found this one a couple days ago while looking for something else. Have not read through it completely, but seems good. http://www.rayrogers.com/ftutorial.htm Some good books on the subject too: https://www.amazon.com/Make-Folding-Knives-Step-Step/dp/0873413903/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1546561631&sr=8-2&keywords=making+folding+knives Yipes the price on this one jumped ! https://www.amazon.com/How-Make-Multi-Blade-Folding-Knives/dp/0873414829 I believe I had to find that one from a different supplier for a much better price. Amazon sure can be tricky sometimes. Google is always a great goto, evil corporation that it is: https://www.google.com/search?q=making+folding+knife+tutorial&rlz=1C1CHBD_enUS763US763&oq=making+folding+knife+tutorial&aqs=chrome..69i57j0.6015j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 Lots of vids out there...

    That's a good idea. Sort of a Locality based EDC...

    2019 KITH Topic Poll

    Yep, just agreeing with you Are specs up for discussion, or is a vote needed? Is there a ''KITH Master'' to have final say on the matter? I'm down for the KiTH whatever is decided. Some specs would help reign in the imagination, somewhat, unless double edged 1' Butterfly's seems cool to anyone else, lol...

    Wouldn't a folder count as an edc? Does for me. unless edc is restricted to fixed blades in this case. Not voted yet, but think folders are more specific than an EDC. where edc can be a machete for some or kiridashi for others. I see many bowies around here. Stoopid state laws eveywhere else anyways Edc should be better defined for this poll. oh, and they make 12 inch long butterfly knives so maybe upper spec on folders and edc is best defined for the benefit of hopeful participants.

    I've always wanted to make a butterfly knife/balisong. It's a folder, and probably illegal in every other state. Relatively simple to make, with much room allowed for creativity. Fun to play with. Just an idea...

    If going for folders, why not go all in with a lockback, or maybe italian style spring loaded stilleto? That would be both fun and challenging. I've never done either.
