A work in progress, The Old School Pioneer X "Compact". For this one, I used some old stag I had on hand and kept the keyring. I'm using a new process to join the bolsters to the frame so I'm carrying this one.  Still have some finish work and polishing to do. The next one will be Ironwood, also I'm considering doing it with a Titanium frame and bolsters.

Stay tuned & Happy Thanksgiving to all!

That's very pretty!

How do you join the bolsters to the frame?  I've always assumed they were soldered on, but have no idea if that's true.

If the trees blew down the wind and no one was around, would the alphabet song really go backwards?

I attended the first Americian Bladesmith Society School Folders Class 12 years ago. The Mastersmith (John Perry MS) teaching our  class  used a spot welding system to attach bolsters to his knives. Recently, I was lucky enough to be able to acquire one of those systems. It provides a lot of flexability in attaching bolsters to frames and seems to provide a strong bond to the materials. I  welded the nickel silver frame and bolsters on this "Old School Compact" X. I intent to carry and use  this knife to test the bonds and see how this works out. Also since it's been over 10 years since I built an Old School SAK, I wanted to make sure the knives will hold up.

Thanks for asking!

Thanks for the explanation  :cheers:

How did you attach them before you were able to weld them?

I used silver solder, it's another tried and true method.

Hello SAK community,
I wanted to share another Old School SAK mod that I recently completed. This is a Pioneer that has a titanium frame and bolsters with ironwood scales. I have to say the titanium frame makes a nice lightweight package it only weighs 0.5oz more that a standard aluminum frame pioneer. However, I will also say the TI frame is much more difficult to work and shape than the nickel silver or stainless frames.
