Colonial Barlow build

Started by Jon Linville. Last reply by Michael Squier May 10. 6 Replies

I picked up a mess of knives awhile back for next to nothing.  I think I may have had $0.25-$0.35 per knife invested in the lot.  In it was a Colonial Barlow with a broken scale.  I didn't feel like gluing it back together, so I did this,…Continue

Uncle Henry (Schrade) half blade

As promised in an earlier post, here is the Uncle Henry that had a half of a blade missing.  After some effort procuring a 1/16" piece of 440C stainless steel (what research had shown me these Uncle Henry blades were composed of), I finally got to…Continue

Saw this great piece of work and I am looking for some advice on repairing the pin on an Al MAR OSS model. The wire cutter portion the pliers grip is loose.  Does anybody know who might handle this kind of muti-tool repair?

Thanks in advance

Im not sure if its an improvment either but there are a lot of those alloy SA knives, now he has a unique knife. Very well done.

If I was your Shop teacher I would give you an A+ for that project.

Especially nice work on those pins! If I were the owner of that knife I would be very pleased.

One of the more fiddly projects I have taken on. Is it an improvement? I trust the owner thinks so.
My first time ever with Micarta which was interesting and as always I learnt heaps along the way.

Derek, great work, inspiring, i need to make time to get to my shop.

Derek

I .. like you .. don't do it for the money.

I do it for the knowledge I gain in the process.

.

I find something very self rewarding when I succeed

i.e. when the final result is .. nice.

and

I learn something EVERY time.

.

I add just a lil bit more to my skill set.

That is my reward for doing the projects ... some of which I've posted here.

.

I can relate

Comment by Derek Wells on November 21, 2016 at 13:39

 D ale .... why?  You are correct I didn't ask I guess he just has a 'thing' for micarta.

I'm actually asking why I said yes right now... I am a bit apprehensive that this last little bit of the build will test my skills. I don't do this for money ... just for the challenge.

Comment by D ale on November 21, 2016 at 3:48

Nice job, Derek !!
.

Why'd the guy want micarta .

I mean

What's wrong with the originals ??

.

Not ours to ask.

:)

Got "Side Tracked" (it happens a lot)

Fella asked me if I could put some Micarta handle scales on a Victorinox Solo

I like a challenge soooo....  (All pics are reduced file size)
