Tanto slip joint W.I.P

It is time to start a new Work in progress, this time i wanted to try something new so i will make two folders from this model, the first will be with a tanto blade and the second with a normal blade. Still I do not know what materials I will put on them but I will find out on the way.
Thanks for looking
NP

Well i had to rescale a folder for a customer and i had to put this folder on hold for a few days, i have decide to go with stainless bolsters and dark red G10, the G10 must be here next week,
Today i have grind the back spring and the bolsters flush with the liners, and now it is time to clean all the parts and make the blade and back spring ready for heat treat.
Thanks for looking
NP
