Some custom SAK
on: January 04, 2014, 09:34:05 PM
I start with the first one for 2014, a Wenger Cigar 36 with warthog tusk scales. Fileworked blades, tools, liners and springs (inside and outside with 2 different patterns) :



Sorry for the poor quality of the pics.

And a selection of older ones.

A Climber with snakewood scales :


A Climber with briar burl scales and fileworks



A Classic SD with "lamellé-collé" (dyed and stabilised wood) with fileworked pieces, even the thin stainless liners :




Another Classic SD with buffalo horn scales, chequered and with brass inlays. Also with fileworked pieces :



Simpler Classic SD with only scales replacement :

Snakewood :


Mammooth fossil ivory :


Red Paperstone (very dark) :


Deer antler :


Refurbished abalone (mother of pearl) :


AZ desert ironwood :


An Alox Classic SD with only fileworked blade :


A one blade (like Excelsior) with snakewood scales :



Some others will follow (111 mm, garden tools...).

Very nice work. Regretfully the file patterns aren't that visible due to the flash. :-\ Try taking the pictures without flash or with using a light box (google "light box" for some ideas).

What file patterns are there? It looks like vine and I can't make out the other one.

Another Nomad with kudu horn :




Carved AZ desert ironwood Nomad :



A small pruning tool (brass liners and fileworks) :


The 1.9300 pruning tool :

Nice work! The filing reminds me of my Laguioles. Very nice.

Thanks. Sorry for the fileworks details, I try to improve this. You're right there are vine fileworks and other more "modern" patterns. I realize about ten patterns (arrows...).

Carved AZ desert ironwood Nomad :



Most impressive!    :salute:  I really like the filework on this Nomad.   8)  What is the pattern on the springs?

Thanks to all !

It's the most classical pattern for the outside of springs, blade and tools. You can adjust the length between the patterns for a different result (here it's very close). It's symetric on the two springs. For the inside it's a modern pattern.

Spatha, here's a better picture (I hope) with natural light of the Nomad :



Three other customs from this summer/autumn. First a boxwood Climber with basketwork pyropgraphy :



An Alox Excelsior with main blade and spring fileworked (inside of spring also). No anodisation of the scales which are polished like silver :


A carbon fiber Spartan with fileworks :

 :cheers:  Thanks for the new photos, Michel.  Those pictures came out really sharp and well exposed so now I can behold the intricacy of that file work in all its glory.     :drool:  Truly inspirational work.

Thanks Sidhartha.

Today I finished a Swisschamp with kudu horn scales. Main blade with vine fileworks. All 8 liners with fileworks, the inside part is simply polished.




Here are better pictures of the Excelsior with polished Alox scales without anodisation, and the details of the fileworks :
