Hi! I have been working on those desings for almost a year and finally I started to make prototypes. As usual, I am making them in cooperation with my brother on our CNC milling machine. My idea was to design a couple of knives which will be my regular models. I decided to design two size of friction folders, and two necks: three finger with scales and skeletonized one. For the friction folders, I have used the concept of knives that I made in the past: WAR Squirrel and small Squirrel. I don't have a prototype for a small squirrel yet but I hape to make it soon. As those are just prototypes, I have used black G10 for the scales - it will be different in finished models. A prototype of the two finger neck knife (I have to think of a name for it) is made only with G10 but it is just to check how it fits the hand.
|I think of this neck as a some kind of Pocket Survival Knife. It is a hidden tang construction so it is very light but steel durable as it will be 2.5-3mm steel.|
|Two finger neck. For sure I will make a titanium version of this knife with carbidized edge. It fits to Altoids tin, which was one of my priorities during designing. Another priority was a paracord wrap option.|
