And fighteth with the heat of the furnace,

And noise of the hammer and the anvil is ever in his ears,

And his eyes look still upon the pattern of the thing that he maketh,

He setteth his mind to finish his work,

And waitethto polish it perfectly.

So anyone have opinions on if there should be any guidelines, other than just folders???

Friction folder... ie, no lock per se, and usually no spring. Exceptions to those rules are everywhere, but they aren't considered a precision machined folder, rather something a frontier forge could put out.

 

Gene Chapman made "mountain man folders", you can find examples on google aplenty. An Opinel folder would count.

 

Last trade I was involved in, years ago, which had this theme, I got a nice one with a steel spine spacer, brass liners, and cocobolo scales, and a blued blade. It was nice. Still have it, somewhere...

 

 

 

 

I intend on doing something distinctly norse-fusion. Got some skills I want to prove out.

For me, at least, a folder in itself is a challenge :lol:

Were you thinking style, or more physical (length, width, etc.)? I'm probably going to try a damascus framelock with engraved scales...

I wasn't really thinking anything specific for guidelines, I just knew many ideas were thrown out there. There are so many kinds of "folders" and so many interpretations of what that term entails. Did we want to limit it or is it anything goes?

 

From what I've seen, there usually is someone semi in charge and guidelines decided near the beginning of the kith. I knew it was possible that I could have missed something already decided along the way :)

I think a wide range of material, styles, and technology would give us a richer selection at the end of the trade. Some people will have specialty in one area, but I like seeing the broad spectrum of how people interpret the challenge.

I have already started a friction folder so I'm hopping it will fly.

I'm fine with whatever anyone wants to make. I just would like to see it be a knife that one could throw in their pocket and carry around without worry. Certain styles and lengths of knives are illegal to carry in many places, as stupid as that may be <_<
