Next Naked Project
« on: September 11, 2019, 08:19:47 PM »
So I’m enjoying the ‘naked’ builds, where I replace the outside liners with 2mm aluminum and peen on the outside. Kind of a poor-man’s Alox...but really allows a little bit of creativity. I don’t mind the raw aluminum as this will get some usage wear over time.

I may look for someone who can anodize small jobs, or get some brass sheet as an alternative. Maybe later...

But back to the latest project. I noticed that without normal Cellidor scales the corkscrew sticks out the side a lot more. So I’ve moved it over one layer and it’s now almost flush with the outer scales.

I’m using the normal scissors backspring, but trimmed a little to allow the corkscrew to fold flat. I lose the hook, but that’s not an issue for me. I use a stub corkscrew pivot to space the blade layer.

From this base (blades/scissors/corkscrew) I can create quite a few different builds. Could switch the small blade for a combo tool and keep it an ultra-thin Compact. Add a file to this for a Trail Guide, or Phillips/magnifier for a Yeoman. Maybe even a Yeoman MS (metal file). I use the opener backspring with the file so I can keep the back awl.

Currently leaning towards the Trail Guide... :think:

I agree it looks good :tu:
 For years I used to keep a huntsman on my keys and it would not take long for them to shed their scales.

My trouble is i never show initiative, but that's only because no one has told me to.

Still to decide on final layers...  :popcorn:
