Forged folding knife

I have made a few of these recently with riveted pivots but getting the action right is very tricky, so I have used a threaded pivot pin and nylon washers which has made a world of difference. Smooth as silk now.  The blade is approx 3" and  about 6 1/2" overall.

Show-off. :P

 

(I can get away with that, Mick is a friend.)

 

Now then:  Mick!  How have you been?  This combination of the simple with the absurdly complex (that mark is part of the pattern, folks...:ph34r:) is brilliant.  I like it, in other words.

i really like what you did with the tail of the blade, the scroll part, i havent been able to get something i like out of that part of a friction folder. 

 

and the makers mark fits the blade very well, like if it were stamped or just etched it would stand out too much.

That is probably the nicest and most practical friction folder I have ever seen.

You should visit more often Mick. :)
