Here is it....finally! I had some suggestions to do some sort of top edge. I thought something subtle would be best. The blade isn't exactly crazy curvy so I'm rather satisfied with my simple, straight top edge. Well, it's also the first Henchman with a CF clip!
Ok, it's a Mini Skirmish with thumbstuds. I prepped two blades like this a while ago and forgot about them. This frame was the test bed for the. CF pocket clips. The inlay side is thicker and contoured. The lock side is thinner and flat, allowing the frame and clip to be as thin as possible. It really carries nice.
I'm quite happy with my pocket clip. I know everyone else has done them but I haven't. Doing the pocket/island single screw attachment was just a bit of a challenge in CF. This is the first knife that I did on a setup and it's probably the most contoured frame I've ever done. It's nice having time to make such refinements! :-)
I've always wanted to do a CF pocket clip and finally worked out a way to make it happen. It's a bit tricky due to how I attach them. I can't make the CF clips the same way I do with Ti. But....... I'm very happy with how they are turning out. CF is the most requested material on my knives right now. I always hated the idea of doing a lock side inlay as most of it ends up covered by the pocket clip. Now, I can have balance with CF on BOTH sides ;-) The Mini Skirmish below will feature a CF inlay and CF pocket clip, Chad Nichols damascus blade and backspacer.......BALANCE!!
