    Hello everyone ,

    i've been a member for a while and read these forums daily but as you can see i don't post much...
    learned a lot here so i wanted to share my latest creation :) lots more work but you can see where it's going

    specs:

    blade: cpm 3v .220" ~ 5.5mm
    handle: titanium .150" ~ 4mm
    pivot: 420 stainless steal .390" - 10mm diameter (no yet heat treated)
    standoffs: titanium (i made these 4 and in the process broke 7 taps :grumpy: )
    i got all my material from AKS

    Thanks. Peter and Jake work all the Magic.
    You nailed overbuilt! Love the thickness of 3v and Ti. I'd be proud to carry that knife in my pocket. I like it a lot.
