I am actually a few lunch breaks into this project, but I just haven't remembered to post anything until last night. So here is an overview of where I am currently.

My design sketch, the one on the right was the original the left is the finalized idea.

I then cut out my patterns and cleaned them up via belt and file. I drilled some holes in a board, filing and checking until I was happy with the fit between the spring and blade.

I now have the liners cut out and for everything together. I am pretty happy with the action right now, it may be a little firm, we will see.

I don't really have a way to relieve the material around the pin (creating a boss, or built in spacer) I guess I could gently go at it with the dremel, but I am a bit concerned about that. 

So now I have to start thinking about scale material, you guys have any opinions?20190131_134544.jpg

I believe these are kingswood, olive, ebony, and I am unsure of the red one. I also have a piece that is black and grey with a bit of white similar to the red piece there. It might be cool if I could get the transition from white and black to line up with the differential hardening line in the blade.20190131_124104.jpg

Well, lets see what I can accomplish on my next lunch break!

“So I'm lightin' out for the territory, ahead of the scared and the weak and the mean spirited, because Aunt Sally is fixin’ to adopt me and civilize me, and I can't stand it. I've been there before.”

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

Looking good. I like the sheep foot, great edc blade. Put me down as plus one for olive wood. No particular reason, I just don't see it represented often.
