    You could make one hell of a friction folder with one of those Hultafors, I've seen a picture of one somewhere that had its plastic handle removed and it looked like a friction folder candidate.

    Bit longer than the required three inches though.

    A Hultafors and a Mora.

    I played with a few different Hultafors at the Midland game show last year, and allthough they felt good the cheap price put me off slighlty.
    But seeing as a few here have them, including the exalted Eddie , I figured I'd give one a go.

    I got a nylon washer to put in between the handle scales on the the Svord cos without it the blade over rotated to the point where it touched the Chicago screw/barrel bolt furthest away from the pivot point.
    Cost pence, easy to fit and stopped metal to metal contact which although not the end of the world, still irritated me enough to sort it.

    Thing is, once you get one of those Svord Peasants you'll be thinking about making friction folders from all sorts of materials cos there's nothing to them.

    I have a Buck 119 hunting knife (the classic horror movie style one) and a Buck 112 folder for heavier jobs, the 112 lived on my belt for years when I worked in a timber yard. Both great knifes, tough as hell, hold a great edge, and a sturdy blade. The hunting knife is a little light in the nose for general woods work IMO, if I get back into that I'll probably make one to suit my tastes (I've made knifes in the past).

    i had a buck 112 as a kid in the states. it got left on a picnic bench by my mother in some national park after she'd cut an apple up with it.

    Just think, its because of people like your mother that I got that (somewhere up the thread) hunting knife from Norway.

    So, thanks to the people who lose things cos my family members have eyes like shithouse rats.

    Serious mad props to Heinnie Haynes - Knives, Pocket Tools and Accessories
    Ordered late yesterday, used the zero cost shipping option (5-8 days) and package was waiting for me when I got home tonight

    I've like rubberised grips since having a Kershaw black horse II.
    This'll be a general house, garage, shed, gardening knife.


    And a car knife to chuck in my emergency kit.

    Well I did a deal with Mark Hill who makes some lovely knives as he was wanting some Kent pattern axeheads and billhooks.
    I wasn't really looking for another knife as I'm not exactly short of them as it is but his offer of one of his small ground blades for some axeheads and a billhook was too much temptation.
    Anyway, today in the post I recieved one of his PNK-1 blades, I've still got to put some handle scales onto it which shouldn't be too hard but I've got to say I'm impressed with it
    The grinds are even, its come shaving hairs off my arm sharp and its a nice shape.
    It is quite small but bear in mind I also have fairly big hands.


    I've kept an eye on the stuff he makes for some time now and he's got a good reputation as a knifemaker which I can see now is justified.
    I'm rather chuffed with it.

    Here's a couple that he's finished for customers.

    What is seen cannot be unseen- love the Peasant what a cracking little knife!

    Frost/ Mora's are the business for the money, I've got a couple of them lurking around and a Bahco/ Mora chisel knife which is quite a good little tool for kamikaze hacky/bashy jobs.

    I managed to lose my locking (think of the kittens ) Victorinox that I've had since 16, bought another one just to make the old one turn up. Which it did.

    Quite like Bison's knives Bison Bushcraft - Handmade Knives, Survival Kit, Wilderness / Woodlore Skills, Training and Courses, UK

    I can't quite fathom Opinels, why would 'the' French knife be unable to open a bottle of wine? My other half has a couple of quirky Opi's- one with an Ash handle with Ash foliage laser cut into the handles, and one with deer.

    The old girl's also got a couple of tent peg makers Stock knives, one new one made Mick Stanton of Fraught Wrought, one old french one. I need to set up a bench for them, they are amazing tools.

    I did a bit of clog sole making with a chap called Jeremy Atkinson, a very nice guy with a leaning towards grotty old Yam XTs and classic enduro....
