So, I'm working on a smaller Chokwe design. about 3.25" blade. I'm looking for suggestions. Clip type, lock (I'm leaning to Compression), handle material, color, steel?
Thanks for giving us the chance to weigh in.
Clip wise, I think the long wire clip would be great so the turnaround rests outside of the grip.
Lock, I love the comp lock personally.
Handle material, I’d love to see a raffir noble (with a grey resin) as the straight lines of this design with the randomness of the raffir noble would be very visually interesting, as for standard models the pekka wood or another stable manufactured wood would be fantastic.
Steel, CTS-XHP for the timber version and M4 for the raffir noble (the patina build up would look amazing, in conjunction with that scale material)
I’d love to see it drilled for right side tip up aswell, if it’s not asking too much
Again thanks for letting us weigh in.
All the best,
