I have begun work on my first auto, I'm converting my Butter Bean modle slipjoint to an automatic. I'm getting a lot of help from my good friend and neighbor Steve Jernigan. I'll show it to ya'll when I get finished.

Cool Calvin!, I am building an OTF made for my Huge hands. I see it's been a while, how are you coming on your conversion? Maybe you have posted it already and I missed it?

No I havent finished it, I accumulated all the tools I need and I have designed the blade tang and monified my handel pattern, built a blade pattern then set it aside to build knives for the A. G. Russel knife show in Rogers Ark.. When I get enough knives ready for that show and the Knifemakers Guild Show in Sept. then I will get back to work on the auto. I will post pictures on here when I get it done. Thanks for asking.
