Slip joint all done.
 
I have all ways wanted to make a slip joint knife and 2 days ago, I decided to start with one. As far as you can see I have cut everything and fit the back spring and blade to the final position, next step is to clean the blade and the back spring, and make them ready for heat treatment.

To be continued

Just a small update for this one.
So far, i have grind the blade (still need to clean it and make it sharp), now I still need to trim the liners and the scales a bit, and I must grind a bit of the inside of the spring because the tension it is a bit on the hard side.
And I must say that for my first slip joint it is coming along very good.
Thanks for looking.
