Better and better! How's the lockup on this one? I know you had some lockstick issues on your first.

Again, just very well-done man. :cool:

Thanks everyone.

Yes, the lock up is much better on this one. A small amount of lock stick but I think it’s going to break in. No blade play this time like on the first version.

Here is a quick video of my latest liner lock. CPM-20CV hollow ground blade with double black canvas micarta contoured scales. I’m waiting for my mill to be delivered so I didn’t make a custom clip for it. But they are coming.

I also made some fun little whatncliffe blades.

Very nice!!! I’ve not seen an opening mechanism quite like that, it’s like flicking your bic!

Been a while so I thought I’d share some of my latest knives. All blades are CPM20CV, front flippers. Thanks for looking.

Hi LC, nicely done!
And you progressed into folders.
I see you have an oven and doing your own heat-treating, what HRC are you aiming for.
Have you considered making FFG thin blades?

Thanks! I’m shooting for 61-62 HRC. My newer blades will be thinner than the ones I’m making now but they will still be hollow grinds.

I don't have IG, but watching his progress throughout this thread has been amazing! I'd love to support him and buy a knife once it's possible.
