My Third Folder...

Forgot my razor when I was travelling a month or so ago, so I used the last folder I made. It worked surprisingly well. Not my closest shave ever, but it did the job.

This isn't that one though. I found another folder blade that I had forged a while back. Decided that I should work on it and try to do a nice job. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

F3 - 8” open, 3 ¼” blade, 4 5/8” closed. Blade: 1095 high carbon steel, liner lock folder. Steel pins and liners. Bronze bushings on main pivot. Big Leaf maple Burl scales. Filework and copper accents on spine.

Next on the agenda is redoing the handle of AR7 which I never liked the feel of. We'll see how that goes...
