Some Friction folders.


Well-Known Member
Been working on some new designs for Liner locks. Thought I would try this one out in a Friction folder to check the size and shape.
Designed on CAD.

Cut the parts out and stuck them to some 1055 to make the templates...

Holes drilled...

Templates profiled. Now to transfer the designs onto the knife parts.

Missed a couple of steps, but here are the blades after heat treatment, ready for grinding and the handles are profiled and drilled. the spacers have brass inserts is that have been drilled and tapped.

All the parts ready for assembly....

All done.....

Nicely done Stefan! I find friction folders fascinating, more so than other folders. I like the look of the blade and I think you have done well with this design.
