Finally finished up my 1st 2 blade trapper I've been working on here n there! 6 years ago this week I started my knifemaking journey in fixed blades, then about 3 years ago I ventured into making these folders...never in a million years would I have thought I'd have taken it this far! Thanks for following along on my progress!

Haha, nope!! I have attempted 1 and it's still in various parts on my bench because I wasn't happy with the way it was going. I've been so busy w slipjoint orders the past 2 years that I haven't had much time to work on new skills like the lockblade mechanism. I WANT to make one, just don't know when I'll get around to doing it. I've had a lady I work with been hounding me for 2 years to make her a lockblade for her husband!haha I'll get to it eventually!!
