What would you call this?
« on: September 10, 2008, 07:47:39 PM »
I had some bits left over from the Swisschamp-a-like I made recently. Some of the bits were in a poor state, meaning that I had to grind a fair bit of metal / carbon fibre, but I managed to come up with this:









What production SAK does it resemble?

Truly nice work, I  :salute: you,

Hiker is it? I can't tell from your pic def - does the Hiker have the round phillips on the back?

The quality of it is actually quite poor, as the scales were under sized, and the liners were pitted and corroded to hell, so I had to grind the liners down to even loosely match the scales etc.... I was just using up some loose ends really, to make a user. It's solidly put together, but not that pretty if you look close!

I'm on the lookout for new condition donor knives for the next one!

Thanks for the encouragement guys!

A friend of SWMBO has donated me a block of wood, cut from a tree he felled (he's a landscape gardener) to see if I can make scales from it. I think he said it is Yew - but can't remember for sure, but it seems pretty hard!

Problem is, I don't have the tools, know-how or confidence to cut it into slats  ??? I'm currently asking around to see if anyone can cut it for me, and then I'll be trying another one.

If anyone has donor knives they might be interested in parting with for a paltry sum - please let me know! I want to have a go with "new" condition tools and liners now and see if I can make a knife that's a bit more presentable.

I'll fire off a mail to felinevet I think.......

I was way off the mark - it's mahogony. Must have misunderstood where he got it from! That's gonna be even harder to cut precisely  :think:

Sandpaper....and lots of it :D Cut it roughly to the size you need then get sanding, takes a while but worth it :)

Good work on the mod too :)

Life is like a sandwich...the older it gets the crustier it becomes!

It's the "cutting roughly to size" bit that's a challenge, as I don't want to waste any if I can help it. Once cut to the right thickness, I'll be fine I think. I need some kind of circular saw I reckon.

That's a nice bit of recycling Dave  :salute:

Whilst asking me for new pruning blades or bit drivers may get you  :twak:  Feel free to send me your shopping list and I'll see what I've got spare :)

I've got a lump of cherry I removed from a tree in the garden I need to sort out.  I think I'm going for a nice simple little whittler and perhaps a bail to spice things up :)

I'm not taking any more mod orders at present, sorry.

Oooh shopping list :D

I'd like :

- Large Blades
- Small Blades
- Saws
- Files
- Pliers
- Good condition liners

I've got awls, corkscrews, can openers, bottle openers at least a few of each. I've also got various backsprings. If I can cut the mahogony, there's enough there for loads and loads of scales! I'll probably just build whatever I can get - I've no real "need" for a specific knife, I just want to try and make something nice.

Cherry sounds nice btw.

Its not a huge chunk of cherry but then SAKs aren't big knives. Hopefully I've got enough for one little one and enough to rescale an old soldier.

I've definitely got files, probably saws, might be pushing it on pliers as I think Mikko had my last but you never know.  Most of them are under a big pile of crud on my worktop  :-[
