Okay after one burned finger two blistered thumbs, several curses, swearing to quit knives and become a monk, and more hours than I care to mention, here is my third slipjoint. I just need to finish sanding the bolsters (ran out of paper!)

SS liners with N/S bolsters
ebony scales
Let me know what you think.
thanks

Well here's hoping all goes well this weekend! 2thumbs

I've had one hell of a morning. Was bead blasting a small blade and the 'trigger' on the gun got stuck open. So when I finished the blade I took the gun apart and got that working again. Then I was getting ready to Gun Kote the blade and my air brush wouldn't blow the phosphorous. So I took that apart and got it working again. But it drips from the tank, so I didn't get something put back together right. Undaunted, I sprayed the knife with the phosphor, ate breakfast and went back down to spray on the Gun Kote. Ran like a ... well, it ran all over the blade. So now I'll be taking that off to start all over. :D

Dave,
Put down the knife and step away from the shop!
Just kidding, but sometimes when nothing is going right I just have to put everything away and start over the next day.

You got it man, that's my plan. Maybe some leatherwork this afternoon. I won't cut myself - really!
