Default Pocketknife out of my shop

Just finished this one up but it sold pretty quickly on instagram, so just showing it off here!

This one is 3/32", 154cm stainless steel blade and spring, 416ss bolsters, and jasper gemstone scales. 2 3/4" blade and 4" closed.

(I have several fixed blades for sale in the classifieds if you're in the market, and will be working on a few more folders before I get too busy with football season!)

If ya have any questions feel free to ask and thanks for looking!

I just pinch the blade with my fingers on all my pocket knives... i dont personally use nail nicks because I cant stand the feeling of my fingernail ripping off when the spring is tight!!haha BUT, I cut this blade/spring out about a year ago, before I could do nail nick's and it's just been sitting on my bench til last week. I went to TA Davisons' shop out in Mississippi and he showed me how HE makes them, so I started working on a new batch when I got back from his place. While my new batch of blades and springs were heat treating, I worked in this older one...Long story short, my next batch will all have nail nicks!

the knife is beautiful. But i have a comment, a negative one but not to your knife just in general.

when i was a little kids my parents didn't buy me knives are anything like that but i would buy them on my own when i went to the local hardware store. I always bought knives like the one you have shown at the top. The negative comment is the fact that as a kid i would use them and always have time close on my fingers when you pushed to hard on the back side of the knife. since then i have always wondered way non-locking knives were not a standard. Because as i got older (I'm talking 7 or 8) i would only buy buck style knives because they would lock.

Why do people carry knives like the ones you have that fold but do not lock?

Honestly, I have no idea....haha the slipjoints like the ones I made above, do not have a lock per se, so you have to be careful using it in a stabbing motion and make sure you apply downward pressure. If the pressure is applied to the cutting edge of the blade, then you dont have a problem with it closing on you. Slipjoints have been around for a LONG time. For me, it's a nostalgia thing with slipjoints...its the 1st kind of knife I carried, and it's what my granddad always had on him. I've never made a folding knife with a lock on it because it's a little more complicated. I intend on trying a lockback folder in the near future though! Good question!

It's a very nice looking knife. The lines are good the handle perfect and for some reason I like the blue but not as much as the one with the red slabs.

You ever make blades from D2?

In any case, well done!

Thank you! I've got some d2 steel a nearby knifemaker gave me because he didn't like it, I just haven't used it...I would have to do some research for heat treating it. I've got heat treating down for 1084, 0-1, and 154cm/cpm154. Those are the steels I use. I can make ya one w the red handles if ya want, just let me know! I'm headin for CO tomorrow so I'll be outta service for a bit!
