Bite you, did it?  

It's only a flesh wound.....Actually, I slipped at the disc sander and put a nasty gouge in the blade. It's OK now after several hours of hand surfacing on the granite slab.....

Joshua, they are all excellent, my 2 cents is the fixed blade for an EDC. Just easier to use everyday in my opinion.

I could still make another small fixed blade. The Damascus one is off the table per the boss. I just got another commission this week for a Damascus blade. Maybe I'll have a small piece left over Then again, I also got two knife repair jobs and I have to start building my place in New Mexico. Not enough time in the day.

This is almost entirely done. There are a couple of things that are wrong with it, and it may end up as my personal folder, rather than ever leave the shop. The left side pin is visible and I could diddle with it a bit more and make it go away. The file work is not my best. There are still some scratches in the bolsters that need some attention. The front pin is not centered.

Well here it is so far.

I really like it, and would also be thrilled to receive it.

I think it would be a great contribution.  KITH is largely about doing something new, or as the case may be, blowing out some cobwebs for something you haven't done for a while.

I like how you reversed the filework so that it is against the scale rather than the spring.

I use the Etchomatic and buy my stencils from Marking Methods.

Same for me @Joshua States

I've been hanging around here going on 2 years and I've always thought I should take part in a KITH......I'm glad it's not this one!

You could have a chance to get this one. All you have to do is make a knife that meets the criteria for this KITH. You think you don't have the chops to make a slip joint? So make a small fixed edc or a friction folder. 

KITH is not about making something fantastic or impressing each other. It's about community and sharing. It's about trying to make something that fits a specific set of parameters and watching and encouraging each other through the process. 

You of all "beginners" here should not be shy about KITH. You have nothing to be scared or ashamed of.
