Swore I'd never make another one of these...this is what I get for saying "never"... and if I'm gonna make 1 I might as well make 2!! Other one is a little smaller and its available if you're interested...you can choose handle material!

Can you tell me the length of that red one closed? Can you make that with yeller handles and a pocket clip? Are these liner locks?
Thanks

Thanks guys!!

The red one was almost 4" closed... I can do the yellow handles but I dont do pocket clips, sorry! these kinds of knives are called "slipjoints"...there isnt really a lock per se like a liner-lock or a lockback...on these knives the spring holds the blade open, open at half stop, and closed.

I can if you want one, otherwise probably not, unless I have a small leftover piece of steel...that one went to our VFD to be used in a drawing to raise money for them this weekend

Finally able to finish this one for myself! what kind of knifemaker doesnt carry one of his own knives!? (this is actually the 3rd one I've made for myself, people talked me out of my other 2) But I finally got one!ha cpm154 w koa covers, double bolsters, and fileworked liners. This was my 1st attempt at spot welding bolster instead of my normal soldering, and also the 1st time chamfering bolsters!
