Little Bird Folder

Recommended Posts

This is a little folder I just finished up. It has a 2 3/4" long blade and is 6 5/8" long when open and 6 1/8" long when closed. The handle is 3 pieces of copper plate riveted together with copper wire. It has a 4th copper pin to limit the movement of the blade. One side has a little bird chased into the surface and the other side has my maker's mark stamped into it.

 

I now have a new respect for the people that make folding knives.

Jacques, please do make one! I am not the person who came up with the idea for this type of knife, I only take the idea and put my own little twist on it B) I am thinking of using some reposé techniques to decorate the copper.

 

 

Scot, that is a drawing I did that will be going into a game book. In return for the drawings, they will put my information about my knives in there B)

nice knife bob. i was just thinking -you could easily turn that design into a simple liner-lock if you ground a 10 degree angle on the heel of your blade, align it with the pivot pin, scribe a line and cut it out with a jewellers saw - im sure you could work harden the copper into a fairly effective spring. just a thought.

Thanks Jake! I'll be sure to keep that in mind, though I'm trying to get a hang of this precision hole drilling thing... what a PITA! Really makes you appreciate the work that guys do on these type things.
