Thanks for asking.

Not an exact replica and/or for production, but if you want to do your own interpretation of this design and steal some of my ideas,... go for it!

Thanks very much , Tai . my own interpretation is all I'm capable of (if that!). your work inspires me to reach exceeding my grasp. If I don't completely flub it, I'll post the results.

I'll post some pix of my basic process on another thread. The only real difference will be in the chikiri (thumb lever), which is a rat's tail in this one instead of the typical flat.

I can't wait. That is mighty nice of you. I look forward to the learning experience.

Nice piece, Tai. Good to see your work!

Glad to see you posting and making knives again. We've missed on the other forums for the last while.

I need to make something like your necklace folder Tai. I have many hand sheetmetal tools and could easily heat treat the blade with a torch. I might make a few folders similar to yours. Think I'll use brass for the handle though and a braided leather necklace. Possibly made out of four colors?
