my first lockback folder

heres my fourth knife and first folder. its almost exactly to the design shown in neil charity's tutorial accept i rounded of the bottom corner and only have bolsters at one end. i really enjoyed the challenge the folder presented and am pretty pleased with how it came out considering folder makers are always talking aboout precision and this is aboput as un precise as they come. i had no drill press no reamers and no cue but it came out fine, that is to say the blade opens, closes, and locks in place, therefor a success

blade and lock bar are an old dropsaw blade
handle is an old fence post
bolsters liners and pins are brass from TKS

the finish on the handle is epoxy that came out pretty bad, i was just experimenting. but its for my pocket so its OK.

thanks for looking Brett

and incase you noticed and were wondering, yes one bolster is straight and the other curved. now theres precision
