What I am going to try to attempt to pull off is a Scarab with a slightly modified blade, a compound grind with some other goodies on the blade. The handle is going to be all titanium with lots of machining. It will also feature a very special E-Lock and before I forget: it is going to be a full auto. But I don't want to spoil the excitement so I am not going to say what else I have planned for the knife...

So there will be no goofing off for the next few days

Like for the fixed blade Build-Off this is going to have a lot of photos, probably even more.

The materials, time stamps and some technical drawings
Image

Layout fluid on the materials

Image

Scribing the patterns on the different materials

Image

Ready for cutting

Image

Cutting all the parts on the bandsaw

Image

All the parts are cut out

Image

Blade and handles profiled

Image

Handle materials in the lapping machine

Image

The lapping machine in action!
Image


The parts after the lapping.…. Ooooooh nice and flat

Image

Spotting all the holes on my handles

Image

All holes have been drilled, tapped and reamed

Image

Other side

Image

While the handles were together in the reaming process, I went ahead and profiled the handle to 400 grit and after that I have lapped the flats again by hand
Image

Here I am hand lapping a washer to make sure it is absolutely flat and parallel

Image

I am checking the washers for thickness and consistancy

Image

Writing down all my calculations and figuring out how everything is going to work

Image

Boring out the pocket for the spring and the spacer. I love this machine

Image

Measuring the depth of each cut
Image

Sometimes I scare myself
Image

I am milling a little channel to anchor the auto spring
Image


Here is what it looks like on the inside with the spring and washers in place
Image

Time to start the machining! About 2/3 of the handle is machined away

Image

This is before I do my final cleaning and lapping on the inside of the handle. I want to make sure that all bumps or grooves are removed and it is absolutely flat. This is all done by hand with stones, sand paper and flat blocks

Image

la suite demain

Moonlight serait habillé de cuir en nous fouettant et hurlant "t'aimes ça hein ?" et s'arreterait d'un coup..pour boire une bière sous nos yeux, ce serait pareil: horrible attente, vivement que ca reprenne.

allez la suite :D

Off to a good start. After my therapy I am feeling really strong today

Countersinking the spacer screw holes
Image

Checking to see if the screw is laying below the surface. Everything is looking good here

Image

Boring a pocket for the pivot pin

Image

The pocket is bored in both handle to accept the pivot washer (time stamp)
Image


Laying out the handle materials to be fitted

Image

Cutting the handle materials

Image

Mounting the handle on the mill

Image

Machining the handle square

Image

This is what the handles are going to look like (it will look better once I am done )
Image

The handle materials have been drilled and counterbored for the 4 screws and profiled flush with the frame
Image


Making the pivot pin screw (I took this picture by myself )

Image

Pivot pin screws are made. They are completed and ready for assembly

Image

Now I am making the pivot washers. This is stainless steel Damascus.

Image

The washers are off the lathe; it is time for the milling.

I am machining decorations on the pivot washer

Image

Here it is done
Image
I am going to start machining the slot for the E-Lock mechanism. It is not an easy mechanism to make and it is time consuming.

Image

Half way thru the machining process

Image

The machining is done for the rocker. How do you like the little chamfer around the slot? I have never done that before, looks nice.

Etching the pivot washer

Image

Pivot washers are done

This was last night after a long hard day. I treated myself to a lot of calories

Image

I am finding center on a rotary table with a .0001 indicator

Time stamp

Image
Using my optical comparator to take a look at a tool and measure the curf and depth

The tool mounted on the mill and the rotary table ready to be used

Machining a radius groove around the finger groove

Image

Cleaning out the groove

Image

Polishing the groove on the buffer

Image

The grooves around the finger groove are done

Image

I am machining the next set of grooves
Image

Close up of the second set of grooves

Image

Cleaning the grooves

Image

Polishing on the buffer
Image

The second set of grooves is done

Image

This is my final set of grooves being machined

Image

Cleaning the grooves out

Image

After the polishing
Image


If you noticed I cleaned and polished each set of grooves separately. This was to maintain a crisp definition of the machining. It is a longer process but it is well worth it. In the photo I am doing the final polishing on the edge, the facets, the grooves with several different wheels and compounds.

Image

Here I am lapping the flats with a 1200 grit paper. That will be the final finish for the flat surface.

Image

The final result is a two tone, mirror and satin finish. Something to keep in mind: Each groove is deeper than the one next to it; so there is a sculpted effect on the handle.

Image


The handles took longer than I expected and threw me way behind but the end result was well worth it.

Je n'aime pas 99% de ce qu'il fait mais entre les surins, les montres et les stylos, il sait se servir de ses mains le monsieur. Impressionnant.

Alors heu... juste pour faire une mise au point... oui c'est du Elishewitz, donc c'est du lourd, du chargé, on aime ou pas.
C'est pas le but de ce thread de montrer un couteau et de donner son avis dessus à tour de bras, sinon je l'aurais pas placer ici.
Je montre juste le processus de fabrication nécessaire pour un truc pareil. C'est tout.

Alors le résultat final, je peux déjà le montrer de suite pour faire vomir certains et baver d'autres, comme ça ça sera fait :
