Where is the pin that the blade pivots on? Is it trapped between the bolsters somehow?
Reply
:iconhundredhands:
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!

So incredible! Is there somewhere online where your works are available?

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.
