GEC Slipjpont Process

2 posts in this topic

Last winter I fell down the Slipjpont rabbit hole, and in some recent "research" (started about a week ago when I decided a three bladed stockman will be one of the projects I start when I get back) I found these videos. Much of the process is pretty mechanized, but there is a surprising amount of hand grinding (and even hammering with the pivot). I wouldn't have thought to look at a factory tour for techniques for working by "hand" (as in, also with a grinder and drill presses but with less fixturing), but there are some things I want to try out now.

I fell down that hole a couple of years ago. It was right after I got this book: https://www.amazon.com/Make-Folding-Knives-Step-Step/dp/0873413903

Great step by step processes with diagrams and photos from three renowned makers.
