    Just got this back from heat treat and finished it up - 2 " shorter than my "regular" fighter and it seems pretty slick to me!

    This one is ATS-34 but future ones will be 154CM.

    5" Blade, 5" handle

    She's a bute, I still think you could do her up as a folder.
    Just place a swivel point instead of a full tang and a simple sheet metal frame, with your regular handle material, it would look sexy.
    :D
    If yah want me to shut up just say so ;)
    Thanks Valk.

    I am getting the urge to make a folder - I just don't know how!

    Well I think it would be pretty easy, use a Liner lock system to keep it open (so just a piece of spring steel that will push against the back of the blade, keeping it open) Instead of a full tang, use about an extra inch from the butt of the blade to make a swivel point.
    Just copy one of your personal folding knives design. its far easier
