    How do you determine pivot, stop pin and lock bar location?

    Blimey, first time I’ve been here in ages and I find that an old thread of mine had just been bumped. I still haven’t attempted a frame lock....

    An appeal / Photobucket just committed suicide!

    I'm finding postimage quite good Ed. You're right - it is extortion and I'm amazed they are trying it. Their business is about to go down the can whereas if they had put a small charge on they may have got away with it.

    An appeal / Photobucket just committed suicide!

    So photobucket has taken the decision to change their business model so that there is no free hosting of pictures on to forums and other 3rd party sites. It's odd because some folk don't seem affected where as others are. The charge is $400 per year which is criminal and akin to a ransom note...

    Business names and makers marks?

    With such a distinctive surname, it seems to make sense to me to use it. Use a wolf / paw print if you want but don't do something vague with the name as to just name it after an animal.

    How far do you Corby?

    So, corby bolts. When countersinking them, I generally leave a bit of the post sticking out the far side of the tang like this: so it sits in both scales. However, do you think not having it going through to the opposite scale is acceptable for strength? I know it's not a lot different...

    Making 'micarta'

    Interesting idea. I wonder if perhaps you need to up the amount of metal in there to make it more interesting.

    This was a long time in the making, with three more to come (one day!) http://stewartjlight-knives.blogspot.co.uk/2015/07/homage-to-hoodlum-hellhound.html I think it's a good thing when you are sending knives out but wish you could keep them for yourself. :D

    Anybody here like the combo of Clip point and sheepsfoot on slipjoint..

    Wasn't those the pattern that had a third spey blade or was that another variant? I like the elegance of the three blade I used to have and it's one I regret selling in some ways, though three blades on one was a but OTT for me. A clip and a sheepsfoot does sound nice.
