After borrowing/stealing some ideas from other LJ members (thank you!) I decided to start the construction of a bevel edge.
Having to make it completely from scratch, I have used materials that were at hand: some pear and hornbeam wood and a 10×2 mm brass bar; a 4 mm brass round bar a bolt and nut also of brass. The lever to lock the blade was cut from the brass bar and then epoxied to the hexagonal nut, after rounding it at the lathe.
I then have added some inlays to the stock to make it a little fancier.
