Where is the pin that the blade pivots on? Is it trapped between the bolsters somehow?

Yes, the King Pin upon which the blade pivots is positioned in a Titanium Frame that sandwiches the blade.
The Bolsters are mounted on the outside of the Frame, concealing the King Pin & locking it in place.

I really dig the colors of this one... Somehow it gives me an ''old'' kinda feeling, but in a good way... Dunno if that makes much sense though.
Do you consider to ever craft a full tang?

Thanks, I feel the same way about the colors giving it a sorta Olde-Timey feel. There are some really beautiful stabilized woods out there that are dyed brilliant blues and greens, but I always gravitate towards good old brown!

I hope to make a full tang someday, I'd love to fashion a wooden sheath like those found on the Tantos of Japanese design. But right now I'm pretty hooked of making folders. I'm really drawn to the whole "transforming" mechanical aspect of them.

Hope you're well!

Thanks! I'm not selling my knives right now but I hope to someday soon. Right now they function only as gifts for elders and stuff.

Very respectable approach. I'll keep watching for the day that you do start to sell them.

CarrionArt! I hope you're well and keeping the pain at bay! I was hit by a car last August and have been dealing with managing pain too, thinking of you Bud. Thank god for Morphine, ugh.

I'm sorry but this knife was made as a gift and isn't available for purchase. I really appreciate your interest though. Thanks again.

I saw in another post that you were road-kill. I've been praying for you.

Wouldn't you know that approximately 1 in 100,000 people don't have the neurological receptors for morphine, and I'm one of those "special" people. Demerol is my friend, in those situations :D

If you make another knife with that design-- or one similar-- please let me know if you're willing to sell it. That thing is beautiful. My email is amorse@carrionart.com

Be well, buddy, and heal quickly!

Thanks a lot, I'll definitely let you know if I revisit that design. I'm glad that you like it & now you've got me thinking that I ought to do another one.

That's crazy about the morphine receptors, what a crazy lottery you won. I'm glad the Demerol helps take the edge off!

Enjoy your weekend!
