    I sometimes do it this way too, usually it depends on how tight the fit of the pins is. I try to avoid getting any glue lines between the pin and the scales, especially if the scales are light in...

    So far I have always glued my knives, the early Mules weren't stain reistant so I wanted to lock out any moisture that might react with the handle. You'd have to find some way of ensuring the bolts...

    Hi Hector,

    I haven't used Aluminium before but I don't see why it won't work. The spacers are cut from 8mm stainless tube. I bought a metre of it online from a supplier in the UK.

    I think it...

    I'd go for Desert Ironwood, although it can be expensive. Alternatively, maple is a good hard wood that takes a beating if treated with something like Danish oil and can be picked up very cheaply. It...

    The first knives I made were done with quite cheap materials - black liners, maple, 6mm brass pins, 6 mm brass lanyard tube. Once I got the hang of it and was able to get the scales on without any...

    I'd say that wood scales and brass fittings would probably be easiest to start off with.

    Brass is much easier to cut and file than stainless steel. Most woods are easier to saw and shape than...

    What you needed here was something made from D2. All of my D2 knives feel really toothy and chomp through fabrics. At the other end of the spectrum I've found are steels like 52100, which can be...

    One handed. The pivot on mine was quite loose out of the box. I compress the lock and the blade closes part way by gravity.

    Superb work, it takes a bit of confidence and skill to bring the thickness of the scales down like this.
