Folding striker knife


Rik Palm

Recommended Posts

This was an experiment.

 

I had a really small piece of damascus so I wanted to try making a little striker knife that folds.

 

I was going to use peened pins for assembly but wasn't sure my idea would work. I wanted a way to take it apart just incase I needed to adjust it so I used screws.

 

Its 3 1/2 inches closed, 6 1/4 when open, blade is 1 3/8 long, scroll finger hole is used when striking flint and cutting. 15n20/1084, sheet metal with a simple scroll engraved, (I need to take an engraving class, its fun)

 

anyway thought I'd share...

 

Here it is closed.
