the folder scares me to !! yikes !! unless someone has a pattern for me !!
when i started making folders i just went to canadian tire and bought a cheapie folder which i then took apart and used as a pattern-worked awesome to start
thats a good idea Shad
Folders can't be that bad! lol (coming from a fixed blade guy)
I'd be game for a friction folder.
DOES IT HAVE RED HANDLES ALREADY !! LOL
I am in.how does it work?
stay tuned , we'll fill you in , (KITH- "Knife in the hat") in short we pick a theme/knife style , all participants make one and then we exchange them via some form of random draw system ........feel free to offer your knife build suggestion !! glad to have you in the mix TMR
Friction folder might be interesting too, but for the love of god no locks lol.
how about a neck knife and sheath
Well I'm in. Hopefully the upcoming change in work schedule will make it easier to get some shop time in. Hasn't done so good for me this summer. Hopefully winter brings more free time. And for the theme portion, what have the last few been?
.....always a good idea
the last one and only kith is posted in the "Knifemaking Section" '2013 Kith' was scandi style , have a look at the pictures
I knew you'd be in Steve !!
.......just a thought, if every maker participating put in at least one kith suggestion (more is welcome) that would give us 11 different styles (currently) to choose from in a poll. I will keep track of the suggestions and will update with a poll when we have enough ideas to pick from.......feel free to submit a picture with your suggestion.
I was telling a friend at work that we will be starting another kith and he said joking that it could be a Christmas gift so I started thinking. If it could fit everyone's schedule maby have an end date a couple weeks before Christmas to give time for shipping. When the package arrives it goes under the tree untill Christmas day. Nobody knows whoes knife is sitting a few feet away under the tree. That would be torture for me. Haha. What do you guys think.
...........I like it !! that's a neat idea for sure, just to throw this out there with this theme , start Sept 1st - finish Dec 1st , 3 months to complete ?
Works for me!
I'd be game
could do something random such as a full tang hunter/skinner with a 4 1/2 inch blade-and see what everyones interpritation of that would be.or maybe something double edged for a challenge
........for winter theme , how about an ULU ( out of a skil-saw blade )
