    Two new things, I did this one with Damascus. I also incorporated bearings instead of washers. I really enjoyed making this one. I have again retooled to do bearings instead of washers on my folders. Because I want to make the best possible folder I can make.

    Blade is 1/8 Brad Vice Alabama Damascus
    RC is 57-58.
    Pivot pin is 3/16 with a Ball Bearing System
    Grind is a Hollow Grind.
    Blade Length is 3''
    Overall is 7 1/8''
    Knife is only 3/8'' Thick.
    Construction is Framelock
    Handle and Clip are Titanium.
    Hardware and screws are Stainless Steel
    Weights is little under 3 oz, soaking wet


    My Warranty.
    I have a no non-sense Guarantee, you break it under normal use. I Promise I will fix or replace it as long as I am able to work in the shop. Plus if for any reason you are ever unhappy with it. Send it back to me for a "FULL REFUND" Because I don't make a knife I wouldn't love to own.

    Cool, but I'm personally partial to a tighter pattern damascus on knives this size.

    BTW, Brad was in K-vile for the show this weekend. He sold a bunch of damascus, but not hardly as much as he probably hoped he might.

    Mike, I like Stainless Damascus on a Folder. But I can't sell it for $300.00 either. I also used IKBS. So I spend the morning chasing ball bearings. I have bearings with cages coming in. I wont use IKBS again.
    I talked to Brad last week. He is always a hoot to talk to. He has an amazing story of how he got into knives. When he started he didn't know what Damascus was.

    I know, crazy!

    Chasing bearings!!! Yeowwww. That's highly annoying. There was a company out in California that used caged bearings. I'll have to pull out one of their knives to remember the name. Did a monolithic body and somehow got the bearing races in and the tang.

    Mike, a lot companies have went to bearing sets in their flippers. I took mine apart about 5 to 10 times to fit it. Each time, I had to remove and replace the 30 some odd bearing. I am going to caged system too. I have found the bearing sets from two sources.

    Thank you Stan.
