Here’s the anatomy of one of my bolstered knives. If you look close, you’ll see I have a pin through the thong hole. This keeps everything in line so I can grind the profile.
To finish the profile, I’ll screw the other bolster on, and run a pin through the pivot hole too. Then I can grind both scales, liners, and bolsters together, so everything matches.
I think you will be impressed when you first feel one of my knives. The action is smooth and solid.
Blade length on this model, the Kwerk, is about 3 3/8" x 1/8" thick, and overall length is about 8 1/4". Overall thickness on the bolstered knife is a bit less than 9/16", and the solid G-10 or Carbon Fiber model comes in around 7/16".
This is a fairly large, stout knife, even though the weight comes in around 100 grams for the G-10 knife, and 150 grams for the Bolstered model. These knives are light!
Liners, Clips, Bolsters, Spacers, ThumbStuds and Pocket Clips are all Titanium, and I have the capabilities to anodize them.
All of my screws are stainless, with Torx heads.
So far, the bulk of my blades are CPM154. Cryo treated, and double tempered.
