THE WILDE THING


Recommended Posts

Ulrich,

 

I am very impressed with this folder. It has such a rugged and utilitarian look to it, yet it seems somewhat "pretty," for lack of a better term. Have you ever composed a brief tutorial on how you make these? I have never attempted to make a folding knife, yet I carry at least one folder with me all the time. I would love to carry a folder that I made. In the next year or two, I hope to have developed the skills required to make something like this.

 

Thanks for sharing with us,

I realy like the overall feel and look of the blade. I would say though that a great way to hide the poor looking welding would be to ripple them so they look like the bakc of the blade and handle. It would cover up the poor looking welds and really compliment the overall knife.

I like it a lot. The handle as an unusual, liquid look and the blade is beautyful. I like that kid of filework you have done on the back, it blends wery well with the handle and the overall look of the knife.

I can't judge if the welds are poor or not, but here I suppose that they are made so to look like an amorphous blob with the handle, and their structural role in the handle is not so big, so I like them.

Just curious.. is titanium welded with TIG or whatelse?

This folder looks like it could have been in a Mad Max movie. The handle is supposed to look like that, just wild. The construction is very difficult because you do not have two liners. It is one piece and to get it smooth running and in the precision Uli is known for is not an easy task.

 

I like it very much.

Thats really nice, I love how you joined both scales with weld on the spine therefore creating a one piece handle. I also love the abstract feel of it. I actually really like the way the handle looks, I like how you can tell how it was created if you know where to look and what to look for. This piece tells a story if one is inclined to listen.
