Fiddling with Folders Part 3

This folder is not influenced by the Sword. The blade is highly laminated, Contorted complex steel.

I have three folders made with this Gordian knot patterned steel. This particular knife is framed with Brass and Rocky Mt. Elk horn furniture.

The matching knife is my personal carry knife. These 2 prototypes are not available for purchase, But, I do have an Identical knife available for puchase. The difference...Mule deer Buck horn Furniture.

Fiddling with Folders Part 2

Again with the sword influence with folders. I used logging cable Damascus on all parts, Blade, Spring and lockback lever were all made with cable Damascus.

I used a double fuller, which is a characteristic of European blades. Brass framework is slabbed with stablized Buckeye.

This is another prototyype (You've seen it here first!) Hopefully to be available for purchase in the near future. Original prototypes are not available.

Fiddling with Folders Part 1

As with my fixed blade knives, they are also influenced by Swords.

I thought; "you know, I should extend this concept to folding knives." A Viking sword tip constructed in a folding knife. Copper and Green stablized Boxwood was my frame work, Complex composite Viking Broad sword tip constructed blade.

Pictured is the prototype (You've seen it here first!) These will hopefully be available in the future for purchase. However the original prototypes are not available.
