Make a completely forged slip joint folder! A slip joint is a non locking folding knife that incorporates a spring that applies pressure on the tang of the blade, holding it open and closed, making a satisfying “snap” in operation. The handle and spring are all one piece and will offer a fun forging challenge for seasoned beginner to intermediate smiths. Also covered will be knife steel selection, hardening, polishing and sharpening. Prerequisites include Forged Folding Knife, Beginner Blacksmithing or equivalent.
