Rival Friction Folder Prototype

This little guy is starting to come along now. Profiling the little blade has been a bit of a challenge. It isn’t easy to hold it at all, mostly due to it heats up super quick on the 2×72. I don’t mind the challenge. I’m actually loving the not knowing part of it all. Kind of weird probably, but fun none the less.

I’m about to start working on the spacer for the butt of the handle tomorrow. For now it’s going to be pinned and epoxied on this one. I’m starting to lean toward making a liner lock after this. I’m not sure, sort of will depend on how all of you react to it. If you guys seem to like it, I’ll make some more. If not, I’ll move straight to finishing up my design of a liner lock (Yes one is in the works).

Well, with that said, if you’re a maker and have some tips for me please leave them in the comments. I’d love to hear from you, and learning more during the process couldn’t hurt. As always, thanks a lot for stopping by, and I appreciate your attention. I’m definitely not a writer.

Stop back by anytime, I look forward to your comments.
