Basic Slip Joints by Chris Crawford


In this two DVD video set I demonstrate how to make a basic slip joint using basic knifemaking tools. If you are new to knifemaking, and you are interested in making a pocket knife, then this video is for you.


The knife that I make in this video has an O1 blade and spring, G10 scales, and nickel silver pins.


Some of the topics covered are:

  • Building a knife from a paper pattern
  • Fitting up the blade and spring
  • Blade grinding with a jig
  • Heat treating the blade and spring
  • Cold bluing the blade and spring
  • Knife assembly
