Liner Lock

Something I have been working on for awhile, I am not sure it will be successful. The pictures you see are a second attempt at a linerlock. The mechanism is roughly the same as a SAK Trailmaster.


The fitting needs to be very exact, right now the lock works but does not hold the blade in a rigid open position. I think the mistake I made was fitting the blade to the liner, it should have been the other way around. The notch in the blade tang also needs to be made deeper for more contact surface.



I have some thicker brass sheet (0.40) on order for a third try, I think the 0.32 I used is a bit marginal (about the same thickness as the knife liners).
