Had 41 minutes to get a little more done before I needed to get started on dinner... :ahhh so forgive me for not taking pics at every step!







[/url]



And apparently, I can use the Force to levitate knives:








Still need to finish filing and peening. Anyone notice that I was working with the pins 'free' and not in any jig or board?

Any guesses on the scales planned? Or suggestions what you'd use?  :dunno:

Can I claim the combo tool location as 'kamakiri style'?  :D

I was thinking the free pins where for photo looks.
G10 scales!  :tu:

Great build!  :cheers:

That's a great suggestion!  I've never had one with G10 before.  :think:  Color suggestion, Ray?  I'm thinking I'd get some SwissBianco ones in the future when I mod something I really like.

Nice work kamakiri  :tu: :like:

Thanks Wspeed! I gotta say I'm not trying to make this one super clean and used the drilled side bushings from both knives instead of the 6 clean ones.  Peening is going to be rough as I see this assembly as temporary for my use and testing.

Great build!  :cheers:

:cheers: Been lurking for a while but wasn't sure if it was done before and I never noticed. Thanks CsB! Black is and has been a consideration. And I have some in stock...

Okay, the scales I had at the top of the list were Silvertech...but I've been agonizing over the lack of Plus option. It was mostly for the look, as I was polishing this one inside and out for all visible surfaces. And then put aluminum tweezers in...

Might just stick some temporary red NTO stock I got from Central Valley Wholesale before they closed up Vic sales.

That is nice too... Very GAK-like!  :like:
I've had several types of the SwissBianco ones bookmarked...I just find them a little spendy and not always available in plus style or glow dot. Orange has been at the top of the G10 list but some neon green ones have been available cheap recently.  :-\  :think:

Maybe a little anti-climactic, but I buttoned it up with temporary scales - the take-offs from the donor Explorer while I evaluate carry this mod/build.


For now 'officially' calling it a Reverse Compact Explorer w/ Nail File or Kamakiri Explorer. Probably needs a better name.

shiny inside:


1 pin end is probably not flush on the left side of this pic. ugh.


Probably should cut my own spacer or make it evenly recessed




One issue with putting the in line phillips next to the liner is that it makes contact. I used an interior spacer on one side when I did the double magnifier from earlier because of this issue.




Thanks for the support, suggestions and kind comments during this build!  :)

'Yeoman Special' was the initial project name...but maybe Reverse Yeoman makes more sense? Small Blade Yeoman? Kamakiri Yeoman?

 :ahhh too many options...

:cheers: Thanks CsB  :) ...It's also a Left-Hand Yeoman.  :D  :facepalm:

And checking the wiki on Yeomen, theres a pic of two with the scissor and mag/phillips layer switched. Might have worked better for this one too.  I don't use hooks much, but I like it better in the middle for kickstand use.

And always better used that way without either keyring style in the way.  I gotta make one with a hook and shackle, because the it can be flipped out of the way!

Thanks gentlemen, and good to meet you Sir Jones!  :hatsoff:  :salute:

I was thinking about making it a Woodsman or Modeler version, but indecision on that and what donor knife to pull got in the way of project timing. Next one is probably going to be a kamakiri Troubleshooter.
