Recent slipjoints

Hi everyone,

Here are some slipjoints i have recently completed. I would love some feedback. I have changed my pattern a bit since completing these. Now the inside of the handle is curved instead of straight. Kind of like a lannys clip. I have been fortunate enough to have found alot of great info to ease the learning process. This forum seems much more maker centric than others so im eager to hear what members here think.

Nice! Making a slip joint is on my list of stuff I'd like to learn to build. Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on how you look at it, that list keeps getting longer and longer.

They are all great looking knives. I suspect that a person's preference for specific materials will lead him to appreciate a specific knife more.
I seem to see some marks on the ricasso of the blade with the carbon fibre, which makes me wonder whether you have relieved the liner material around the blade pivot.

I hear you. For what its worth they are not too bad once you get started and there are alot of great resources. I have started my own tutorial on blade forums. Its still in progress but if anyone is interested i can link it here. Im no expert but its aimed at helping someone through their first one.

I have not. I dont have a mill and i havent attempted it with a dremel yet. Its on my list of features to add. As well as nail nicks.
