Something a little more "traditional"..at least for me.

This something I've had on my mind for a couple of years now.... a 416/Mosaic Damascus Laminate Flipper. At first it seemed pretty straight forward, but I quickly discovered that there are a lot of problems to overcome when building a flipper completely out of 416/Mosaic laminate.....took about 40 days of work to overcome all the problems, but glad I did.....this is likely the nicest folder I've ever produced. I'll have it at the Blade Show next week!

I like your line up for Blade and I'm looking forward to the 'more to come'. You do some fun stuff with textures and differential finishing. I found myself looking at your EBK page, and gotta say that's some real eye catching variety.

Wish I could catch up with you and see those in person, Craig

Nice one Ed. Looks like you gave it a little longer flipper/finger groove. The etch and no etch also add some nice depth. I take it the pocket clip is reversible also.
Kevin.

Hi Gang!

Many Thanks for the kind comments!

Craig: Good to hear from ya! Been wondering how you're doing, and how things have been with you and the family!

Kevin: The pics might not show all there really is with this one....the whole thing is etched....the "plain" areas you see in the pics is the 416....You've seen how some fold use a small wheel to grind "grooves" in micarta handles? That's what I did with this one....my thought was to add depth and expose more damascus pattern.

Well, if I bought it I'd have to sell everything I own, and my wife would be very unhappy.
