Thanks I can't wait to see how it turns out I already have ideas for 3 more and enough O-1 to do 8 knives.

This is what progress looks like. It's fun to try new stuff. I just have to keep reminding myself of that. Lots still to do. But hey it's almost a knife kind of!

Done. I couldn't be happier with the results. Western walnut with copper liners and O-1 tool steel with stainless pins and screw and brass round nut. This is my first folder and will now be my daily carry.

Dude, that's beyond gorgeous! I have to ask though, what is the idea behind the large spur? It looks too big to me for a "flick" opening spur (as seen on the ken onion "leek" and several CRKT models) and it doesn't look like a screwdriver.

The long spur is how the blade is opened and then the hand is what keeps the blade locked back while you are working with the knife. This is the first style of folding knife. I'm 32 but I love all older styles of knives.

Ah, so it has no built in mechanical locking system. That's a pretty ingenious idea.

I may ask you to make me a folder, but I need to do some research. I picked up a knife locally in Iraq, but I later lost it in my divorce (I stopped paying the storage fee on a unit when I left my ex, as it was full of mostly all her stuff, and a few things of mine I hadn't even seen in several years.)

I need to look up the style, see if I can find a pic, and run it by you so you can see if you can do it. It has a lock.

It's an interesting design I've only ever seen in the middle east. It's a working knife, not a fighter. More for farmers. Like their guns, they like to see how fancy they can make them. The one I traded for had silver scrollwork style filigree laid into the slabs, perfectly matching on both sides.

Want some bull horn? I'll send pics of you're interested.
