8" overall with Sambar scales, red Corian spacer and buffalo bolsters. Special thanks to John Barker for the most excellent Stag. Shortened and re-profiled blade by Darryl Ralph.
Thanks for looking,
It is a mod of a DDR 3 Blade. I re-made the liners in 440, and again you are very observant, It is my first folder. I had the pivot holes out of alignment and ended up shortening the liners and the blade. It needs a solid spine, so I'm gonna rip it apart and do that next. I have to make one for the build off and was 100% clueless on folders. So now I'm only 99% clueless, but it's a start.
The scales were at their thinnest in the middle and I hogged quite a bit off the back as it was to expose as much of the middle as possible on the final shaping, one side also had a low spot on the top edge and any thinner would have made the liners narrower in the center. (see the 3rd picture). It is a thick piece, hence the sheath. Carried in your front pocket would make you look like you were smuggling a roll of quarters. Thanks for the look and the comments, I appreciate it.
