Well I decided to step out of my comfort zone tonight and start into a friction folder. I started by drawing a basic fixed blade design and then tweaked it to look proper as a folder. I broke it down into several cardboard templates and used push pins to simulate the blade stop and pivot pin locations. What I have at the moment is a functioning template ground out of some 3/32 mild steel, mocked up with peened copper pins. This was a test and the pins will be driven out after and the pieces used as my template for an actual knife. I'm actually fairly happy with the way it worked out so far. Any input good or bad is appreciated.
