Here's a small simple Titanium frame lock. The blade steel is AEB-L stainless. I did a little experimenting with the anodizing.

I really like this one. It's just got some class. My Large folder with incredible Mammoth ivory and Mokume bolsters that I made from 13 quarters each. The blade is Odin's Eye Damasteel. Ti frame is anodized gold and the inside engine jeweled. Floating back spacer is also Damasteel.

Thank you guys. It's like I have to try and 1 up the last knife. I'm running out of ideas. My next one is a folder with walrus ivory scales not sure on the bolsters, maybe anodized Ti. But the blade I'm trying to make is raindrop MokuMai over damascus core. My simple brain already hurts thinking about it lol

Amazing work and artistry... A pleasure to look at all 10 pages of your finished products. Those last two folders are incredible! The melding of different materials and attention to detail, works of art.

Thanks Bradleyr001, I feel like I've come a long way in a short time. There is so much more for me to learn about making knives. Every day these is a new problem to solve. I just found out that I made it into the 42nd edition of Knives 2022. Those featured knives are supposed to be some of the best from all over the world. While I don't put myself in that category, I'm glad I made something that was worth looking at.

This is MokuMai over a damascus core. The scales are Walrus ivory as is the back spacer. I inlaid some copper in the back spacer. Nothing polishes like ivory and the dots highlight the floating spacer between the Ti liners. I need a new tank of gas so this one is $2 large

Yes that surprised me as well. This last knife was the most difficult yet. Took me a solid week to make
