My lad (now 20, don't know where the years went) made this custom flipper for my anniversary.

He has made a lot of fixed blades but this is his first folder so he has set a pretty high bench mark for himself!

Blade is 01 tool steel with Stainless Liners and Oak scales

P1100244 P1100239 P1100223 P1100213 P1100207 P1100209 P1100211 P1100219 P1100229 P1100251

 

nicely made  shame the blade isnt good quality stainless  but never the less  ,well executed  !

Absolutely amazing!!!

Thanks Nicolas. He also has a lot of patience. He probably put 100 hrs into the knife. It is extremely precise and a work of art and will be treasured. Should he make them to sell...it is hard to charge a reasonable rate for that kind of time.

Regards

Griff

      This is one my son has had on the go for a while. The wrought iron is a piece i pulled out of a skip, just thought it was mild steel rod, only realized when it was being forged into a pair of tongs. The tongs got abandoned and the wrought iron put to a better use. The blade is leaf spring from a series 2 landy.

      Recently finished this knife. I made it for a "knife in the hat" draw over on EM forum. 
      The style is Kiridashi so ground on one side only with the other flat like a chisel. Ideal for cutting leather or anything else where you would run the blade along a straight edge.

      This blade is made from motorbike chain hand forged on to a leaf spring core. I have experimented a few times with chain Damascus but this is the cleanest weld yet, not perfect but it has character. Very hard to eliminate all the voids in the chain beating it by hand...even though i spent probably half a day hammering away on it.... I will make a press one day.
      I had a smaller knife in mind when i started out but wanted to maximize the lump of rough forged "Damascus" I ended up with so it determined the size & shape of the final blank.
      The blade is 7.5 inches and handle  approx 4.5 so overall something like a 12" Knife.
      Handle is Scottish red stag and the bolster/ pommel are stacked brass & copper soldered together.

      Heard a while back mention of sharpening with MDF wheels but never really paid much attention. I recently thought i would give it a go and turned up a quick MDF wheel on the face-plate of my wood-working lathe. I clamped a makeshift guide to the back of the lathe and worked with the wheel turning away from me. I was blown away by the results! Super sharp paper slicey edge straight off the wheel.
       
      Decided a dedicated MDF wheel sharpener was high on the list of must haves so started gathering bits. I was lucky enough to pick up an old 8" Makita bench grinder on ebay for £25. Everything else is made from scrap bits so that was all the outlay for the build.
       
      I took the guards off the grinder, swapped the switch and the power cable around so the on/off switch is effectively now on the back so the grinder can be operated with the wheels running away from you.
       
      The knife clamp is made from an old door hinge welded to a bit of rod off of some other power tool, hence the nice grippy knob on the end. A 6mm hex bolt through the hinge clamps the knife in place. A cutting of hex bar slides up and down to alter the angle of grind and locks in place with another allan bolt.
       
      Once set up to the desired angle the blade can be sharpened on both sides and both wheels quickly without altering anything.
       
      The MDF wheels are loaded with grey polishing compound and jewelers rouge respectively.
