    Superleggera Button Lock Folder Design

    I've been working on this design for a couple weeks now,This is the final look of the Superleggera ( means superlight in italian),Decided Sentinel was being used by another knifemaker.
    Superleggera was a construction method developed in the 1930's by Touring Carrozzeria in Milano,Italy,The body were made up of small diameter tubing with a hammered aluminum body panels attached for lightweight touring cars.This was my inspiration behind the Superleggera design.



    I'll be making the proto next week.Stay tuned!

    This is what I'm thinking with the Superleggera concept.Skelotonizing the half liners further.This should be real light for the size of the design,3.6" blade.
