A run of slipjoints

I've been pushing my limits on damascus and forging, but then I got a Christmas order for three folding knives. Since I'm doing three, figured I might as well do some more. Right about the time I was ready to work on them, one of my kids tested positive for Covid, so I got a bit of time off work. In the past 10 days I've finished 5 slipjoints. Did three with washers, two with bolsters. Did micarta, jigged bone, giraffe bone, mesquite, and sambar stag. At first I really felt like I sucked at slipjoints. By the end I realized I was just out of practice.
