W2 folder with hamon and ironwood...

I had this folder in the works for awhile. It was laying on my bench and I finished it up over the long weekend. I thought I'd post it up for comments and discussion.

W2 blade steel, clay quenched and etched
7 3/8" overall, 3 1/4" blade, 4 1/8" closed, .120" thick at the ricasso
Full height grind with full distal taper and false edge
Rounded spine ahead of the thumb grip area
.065" thick titanium liners, jeweled and coin fileworked casing the backspacer
1084 steel backspacer, file-fullered and etched, coined on the inside
Bold contrast desert ironwood scales
Titanium pivot screws and scale screws
bronze washers, very smooth action
nicely centered blade and good solid lockup

All comments, critique and discussion most welcome.

John Doyle

You have nothing to fear but fear itself...........and bears.
