Intermediate Slip Joints by Chris Crawford
In this three DVD video set I demonstrate how to make a more advanced slip joint than I did in the basic video. I also use more advanced tools and equipment, which allows me to produce a higher quality knife.
The knife that I make in this video has an O1 blade and spring, jigged bone scales, and nickel silver bolsters, liners, and pins.
Some of the topics covered here that are not covered in the basic video are:
- Building a knife from a hardened pattern
- Making the liners and bolsters
- Preparing the handle material
- Cutting a nail nick
- Marking the blade
- Making and using washers
- Finishing out the parts
- Peening and spinning the pins
