    Traditional French Friday

    I love the grain of that pistachio handle Ed! I don't have any knives with that wood yet but seeing yours makes it very tempting to get one! Absolutely stunning!!

    Old farts and friction folders.

    Can't let this thread slip too far!! Although I consider ring lock knives a wobbler, someone did say earlier that if you didn't engage the lock, it was still a friction folder. So here's my Nontron Dragonfly in boxwood. Even though it looks like it could be a bed post it is surprisingly...

    Old farts and friction folders.

    Yes, this is the same information I found. It is called Le Montpellier and is available in 2 sizes. This one is the larger one but being just a chunk of horn and a blade on one end makes for an extremely light knife.

    French regional knives...

    I would argue that it has every bit as much elegance as the fancy pants 5Coqs. Just a bit more understated. Love the grain on this one!

    Traditional French Friday

    Thanks! I do too! It's one of my favorite knives actually. It is the small Le Thiers made by the same manufacturer of the famous Douk Douk, hence the similar blade shape. This particular one has giraffe bone covers. It's a slipjoint with a half stop, about a 6 pull strength, very crisp...

    French regional knives...

    I realize what an injustice my photos of this knife have done.... Hopefully these offer this wonderful knife a bit of redemption.

    French regional knives...

    I always thought Fontenille Pataud's 5Coqs knife is a beautiful design. It took me well over a year to finally pull the trigger because I was concerned the knife wouldn't fit my hand, considering the 'beak' of the handle. My fears were completely unfounded and shortly after, I purchased...

    French regional knives...

    Vince, that Le Thiers Nature is a wonderful knife! Very nice choice of handle covers on yours! One concern I had with mine is that the tip is just barely recessed in the handle. I picked up an l'anto at the same time. I didn't have a GEC 23 to compare it to but it's very similar to that...

    Old farts and friction folders.

    One from the maker Mickael Moing in amboyna burl And a couple more in olivewood, which has a very nice scent to it.

    Old farts and friction folders.

    My only knife from Corsica. Very thick stock on the blade and a fairly rough finish altogether but very sutiable for the end product.

    Old farts and friction folders.

    Haven't been around much lately, but what a great thread! According to @Modoc ED I'm a youngster to most of you here, but an Old Fart to a 15 year old, so Apprentice Old Fart is where I probably stand. Lol!! Friction folders, aka the knife with two nails, are some of my favorite designs...

    Lone Wolf Trask specs

    The Swale and Trask are both the same size screws. 2-56. I can't name specific knife making supply sites here, but these are pretty easy to find with a basic web search. I would stick with the button head style and then clip them with heavy wire cutters to the right length. It's pretty easy...
