was thinking about what to do with some left over´s and came up with this little fun project.

i really like to use kiridashi´s in my shop for leather work. and if you are used to them you never wanna miss them.

not everything is perfect in line and the finish is bullshit too. but hey, its a working tool.

I would agree with Alan, it certainly is a handy looking knife. I might actually make one like that just to throw in my dresscoat jacket :P I am always missing a knife when I wear it, and I don't want something that is noticeable, just a usable little piece.

 

Great job, and A+ for creativity, I never would have looked to Kydex as a handle material!

thank you all for the positive feedback.

looks like i need to get some locktide now. the chicago screws starts to loosen a bit after 20-30 times open/close the knife.

 

cheers, geko

Well, I like friction folders (but not kydex, sort of like Alan). However, that looks like a great tool. Way prettier than most of my shop-made tools for my own use. Actually, it is prettier than all of them.
