View Full Version : grace's scandi handled kukri slippy
well, it needs some scales, but it's working, and the blade and mechanism are working a treat. The rather lovely pattern is entirely accidental, and a result of me getting the steel a bit too hot and oil quenching, as i'm sure you know. But it seems to be hard, so i think I got away with it. the action is unexpectedly smooth, but i can't stop fiddling, so I doubt it will be in an hour or so :D
I have some nice purpleheart for the scales
It's a scandi handled khukri folder? :rolleyes:
awful preliminary pics;
Looking good, keep posting please! Thanks, Andy:)

I like that!!Blade looks very nice and different!!
just snapped the spring trying to make it bear down on the blade a bit more
off down town to buy a new cutting disk.:mad:
just realized I bought a stone grinding disc instead of a metal disk, and now the shops are closed
Looks like that's me stuck inside for tonight...
Just a suggestion Alfie I'm no expert but your spring rivets look a long way back. You could do with another one about where your ring finger is in the last picture to give you a bit more snap

That's looking really great (apart from the snapped spring :C ) Looking forwards to seeing it finished.
got it finished,a nd started shaping the scales, but I seem to be plagued with bad luck on this knife. I took a huge chip out of the purpleheart scale by the pivot pin, and it was my last bit of purpleheart tht fits the liners and blade.
here's some pics anyways
and here's some close ups. There was some foul language emenating from my shed for a good five minutes...
and then the sobbing started :P
I have some outer trimmings from a purpleheart log, from which you should easily be able to get one or more scales. Drop me a PM with your address if you need a piece.
