    I present to you my first folder.
    I really wanted to make my first folder for the exhibition in Paris (Ficx-Paris), so I started to fulfill my dream, while working with the guys on the Phoenix series, I made the first folding, and made many mistakes and the first pieces went into the garbage.
    Then I switched to working with other knives. Two weeks before the exhibition, I realized that Vova can practically finish the knives (how well it is to work with my students, already great masters who can do the same thing as you, on the same level), and I can do something specifically for the exhibition.
    In short, I continued to do the folder almost from scratch, I got so carried away that I slept 4 hours a day for almost two weeks, and in the last two days I didn’t sleep at all, I literally worked the night before the flight, the knife was almost ready, but only almost, but I wanted to have a finished work, and I was exhausted and riddled with insomnia, with the result that I ruined the blade, I was green ... Everything, I had to carry a prototype that looks good, but does not work properly.
    After the exhibition, I redid the blade and spent another week working on the mechanism.
