I love making knives. These are three friction folders I have been experimenting with. As you can see in the photos I like very plane, rustic designs with no frills. Sort of a old, rural Japanese look. The blade pf the first knife was made out of a pair of hedge clippers, the second from shearing shears and the third from an garden saw. The steel is surprisingly good in each of these. The wood is Rewarewa and Oak.

My aim is to develop a small number of folding carving knives I can take with me when I go on holiday. Don’t like sitting around not doing much.

Wonderful work John, I bet its not an accident that each of the knives have a certain resemblance to birds.

Hi, do the first two knives have something to keep them locked open? I just seem to see some metal on the back of the handles, open and closed.

Great knives, love your work.

Thanks
