Work in progress all done.

Today?s work it?s?. Yes one more slip joint
As you can see, I have start to give the shape to the blade and scales, but maybe I will do some changes on the design as I go.
The materials are 3.2mm Rwl-34 for the blade and back spring, stainless liners, but I do not know what kind of material I will use for the scales yet.
Thanks for looking
NP.

Orange it is the new black
Here we go with an update from this model, I decided to go with orange G10 scales this time just to try something new and I think it is looking good, next step is to heat treat the blade and back spring and after that I will grind the blade and start to make the folder ready.
Thanks for looking
NP

I like it, my brother won't use anything but an orange knife. They are the only ones he can keep up with. Ed

Here it's a little progress from the folder, i have make some file work on the liners and grind the blade.
Still have to fix the tension on the back spring because it is a little too strong for my taste but I?m getting there.
After that, it is time to polish the blade make it sharp and put everything together.
Hope you like it.
NP

I whole heartedly agree with Don, very nice knife! Solid, simple, sturdy are words that come to mind looking at this. The orange turned out very nice. Blade looks well ground and is great with the satin finish! Me likey....
