    Here, finally, is another little slipjoint.

    I wasn't sure I was ever going to get the time to finish this thing. The knife itself isn't anything special, but I feel like I've climbed a couple of mountains just to get it here.

    Blade and spring are O1. The liners are brass, as is the pivot pin. The bolsters are 416 and the scales are Teak.
    Oh, and if something about it looks a bit backwards, it's because it's made for a lefty.

    I think the teak, along with the pivot treatment, gives it the feel of something old which I kinda like.
    The blade actually has a lot more shine (though no mirror finish) than shows here.

    As always, your comments, criticisms and suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks. When I decided on the teak, I knew I wanted to do something that looked a bit rustic --hopefully without getting too kitschy.

    Looks good to me.

    I wouldn't even have thought anything about where the nail nick is. I actually think I ( a right hander) might like it better there. . .

    BTW, how little is the knife?

    I guess I should have included some dimensions. Closed length is 92mm (3 5/8"). Blade from tip to edge of the handle is 64mm (2 1/2") and 19mm (3/4") at it's widest. Handle is 23mm wide (just under 7/8").

    I don't like tiny knives that you can't hold comfortably in your hand.

    Here's a quick reference shot for scale (sorry for the bad contrast)
