    I made a couple of slipjoint under the watchful eye of Claude Montjoy, but I am on my own for now armed with books and a few phone calls.
    This one is made from titanium frames and has a CPM-154 blade and spring.
    I still need to relieve the frames and add a nail nick among other things. So, I hope you guys will be pulling for me as I make the move into slip joint pocket knives. I will be trying a few single blade patterns until I start to get the hang of it.

    Excellent pattern and shape! This will be a great EDC when finished.

    I'm a big fan of the swayback pattern too. Any updates?

    Very nice Bobby! I'm pulling for you. I've always thought slipjoints (I'm a fan) could use another fine maker, and excellent steel to go with it.

    The wharncliffe is my all time favorite pattern too. ;)
