Take-Down full tang

Posted on Saturday, December 24th, 2011 at 2:43 pm under Knife construction.

This is a take-down knife that I am making for a customer.   The blade is damascus that hasn’t been etched or heat treated yet.  I will post pictures when done.

The bolsters are 416 stainless and will be engraved. They are attached with two 0-80 screws and held in alinement with four 1/16 pins.  The handle is interiour mammoth ivory and will be scrimshawed.  They are attached with two 4-40 button head screws.  Using this method the knife can be completed then taken apart and etched so the damascus pattern shows all the way around.  The pieces can also be sent to various artists to be scrimed or engraved.  I will be posting more photo’s later.
