Slipjoint - Erik
Modern aesthetics and materials with time honored and classic function in this slipjoint folder.
The Erik model slipjoints do not have a half stop. Fully open and shut are the only stops.
Blade and spring are CPM Magnacut. Blade has a hand rubbed satin finish. Scales are fab'ed in house featuring CrazyFiber bolster and white linen Micarta with a titanium spacer. Hardware is stainless and Birdseye pivot using black Canvas Micarta for the collar and matching DVB bead. Liners are titanium. Includes a hand stitched DVB leather pocket slip.
Action is very light and smooth at 3.5/10 and has a nice snap at open and close.
Nakiri - Magnacut
CPM Magnacut (64 Rockwell), .180" at spine & ~7". Ground very high, thin at edge, not one trick pony thin. Hand rubbed satin finish. Balanced at the pinch.
Handle: Frame construction featuring beautiful Keyaki wood (from @galleryhardwoods ) that keeps looking better the closer you get, G10 and a shredded carbon fiber ferrule with G10 spacers.
Row - Fancy EDC
Blade is .190" AEB-L at ~64 hardness, full flat grind, moderate distal taper and that Rocksteady finish.
Scales made by me using recycled skateboard deck and G10s with matching bead (no lathes here. Just grinders and hands).
Sheath is ambidextrous. Made in house using an Ulticlip for secure attachment.
Row - Joker
This one is built for work with an Elmax blade (exceptional stainless) at ~63 hardness with Rocksteady finish and comfortable ergonomics in a small and very lightweight package. Handle is dyed and stabilized maple burl & comes with a custom matching bead made without a lathe.
Leather DVB sheath sheath made in house with matching stitching and an UltiClip for secure attachment to your person or equipment.
Row - Oregon Boy
The steel in every Oregon Boy knife is repurposed from a saw blade that was used in a mill just up some mountain roads from here. It has had a life helping people all over the world make their homes and dreams from local trees. The wood in each knife is all big leaf maple from our local trees and stabilized by the best and absolute wealth of knowledge, @galleryhardwoods . He's helped me display the diverse beauty of big leaf's figuring and colors to truly celebrate the wood and show off its beauty. All of the Micarta is repurposed from a mill you can see from our property and I've oriented it several different ways to display how differently it can be presented and look depending on the Maker's desire. Now, each component is part of my dream of being an artistic bastard making supremely useful tools.
Just as the steel and Micarta were forged and formed elsewhere, but found their purpose and destiny in Oregon...so have I. I feel fortunate to be where I am and do what I do. I appreciate everyone's stoke and support through this journey...more of a quest I suppose.
Comes with a hand stitched leather DVB sheath featuring an UltiClip for secure hold.
