    Hey Folks! just thought i would let everyone know that we are going to do another run of friction folders with some options this time :)

    Our base model with the textured Black G10 and your choice of copper, brass or stainless tubes are still the standard 55. We do these in bulk, having the handles and blades water jet saves us time and you money :) we still have to drill the hole and set everything by hand and sharpen and polish, but all the profile works is complete beforehand so we can save time there.

    We are also going to offer a few more G10 options, Jade, Hunter orange with coarse texture, Olive Drab, Coyote brown and Tan.
    These come with the same tube options but everything here is cut, profiled and fit by hand. this adds quite a bit of time so the price for these goes up to $70

    Wood, We have had several members ask if we can do wood scales, the answer is yes, but through some trial and error we found out that we need to add a liner material to it to help support the wood. So these will get either ss, copper, brass, G10 or micarta liners. The price for these will be set at $90.

    Thank you for your continued support, we love making knives and tools for people who appreciate and use them :)

    We will be taking orders for these now, let us know if you are interested !

    My minipeasant is very jealous... I want to see what people come up with for the wood versions to give myself some ideas.

    When I get bored at work I find myself coming back to look at this knife time and time again. The design is intriguing and the curly mahogany is beautiful. Still catching up from the holidays and having a custom knife on order, I can't justify the expense right now. I'm sure that if I held one of these babies in my hand I would cough up the funds. Down the road maybe... Good job to the guys who put it together.
