Pretty Cool eh? I have made serveral of these mostly for my kids and nephews that were too young to have real knives so I made the blades dull and put a lanyard on them (they REALLY love them). This one I made for myself, it is of a walnut handle, Oak hinge pin, with a cherry blade (that has a pretty scarry edge on it) & spring. I call it my Airport Express…100% wood. You might note in the second pic the wood spring extended beyond the handle because the blade is not out completely. No plans… every one has been different. If there is enough interest i might be able to put together a rough concept drawing.

-- enjoy your wood...

Too cool, what a good use of small scrap wood pieces, which I am sure we all have too much of. Thanks for sharing!

Would you explain the spring part, or maybe show a photo or two?

Thanks again!

I don’t know what it is but kids just love knives.When my boys were young my eldest son pesterred the life out of me for a Rambo knife.He insisted the suture kit would ba a lifesaver if ever he was out in the woods and got badly cut also the fishing hooks would help keep him alive should he stray from home and be half starved even though the woods at the back of my garden are just about twenty acres anyway I relented and gave in he and his brother got one with various conditions attached.Almost a week later they were put into a catrdboard shoe box by the boys who grew tired of them, and they are probably still there LOL I like the design have fun.Alistair
