    I finished my first slipjoint. The blade is 2 3/4" D2, the liners and bolsters are one piece of blued mild steel. [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG]

    Wicked! Great work man. What did you think was the most challenging aspect of the mechanism?

    Honestly it's a simple mechanism that is unbelievable complicated. Getting the spring to 0 when the blade is in all three positions was tough. Drilling the back pin with just enough preload wasn't easy. If you change something it effects a bunch of stuff.

    I made this one without a proper pattern, it caused me lots of grief. I lost this knife in my berry field, ticked me right off
