  1. Hello everyone, This is a little folder I made a while ago... The blade is 3 bars, 2 of which being twisted "W" pattern 1070 and pure nickel and the cutting edge being regular twisted pattern, O2 and 15N20. The mechanism is back lock with the spring being one solid piece with the back, which is fully fileworked (inside too). The back/spring is 5160, bail in Titanium, all pins are Titanium, damascus bolsters, snakewood scales (cut offs from a baroque violin bow blank), 304 liners. Leather box hand tooled and stitched, it also works as stand by a small notch in one side of the box. A small mirror allows the owner to look at the other side of the knife when he's not holding/carrying it. Or, the box can be used as small make up trousse for his wife. It was very hard to detach from it... I hope you enjoy... Take care, Francesco
  2. My family came up this weekend, and my Dad, who is also a beginning bladesmith, showed me some pictures of the knives and sheaths he and Cliff Morris (our mentor) had made. Cliff is a professional who lives near my Dad and the two of them spend a lot of time in Cliff's shop. Keeps them out of Mom's hair, I guess. I don't know much about the steel, except there is no stainless involved. You never even mention 'stainless' around Cliff. Ever. Mac Hedges (my Dad) did the leatherwork. This one is my favorite sheath: Pics were taken with a cell phone. Not the greatest quality, and I'd like to see some more of the blades themselves. And a shameless plug: this Mac Hedges is the same one who wrote Last Buckaroo and Shadow of the Wind.
