Gunstock slipjoint
« on: August 28, 2019, 05:24:08 PM »
I finished up this 3.75" slippy this summer - It has Ti liners, micarta scales and a CPM154 blade and spring.  It is surprisingly lightweight with those Ti liners.

Nice!! Well made with clean lines and workmanship. How thick are your Ti liners? Was it hard to work? I have some Ti for a slipjoint but I haven’t started it yet. Great job on the knife!  :clapper:

Thanks guys.

Luc - the Ti is .038 thick and is more difficult to work and it’s hard on the tools. I use carbide drill bits, grind with dark glasses and plenty of respirators. I think it is almost worth it though as it is super lightweight and makes great liners in a pocket knife.
