View Full Version : Folder July <<WIP>>

Hello guys and gals. As some of you already know its FOLDER JULY!
We are working on a batch of damascus liner lock folders which I am calling the MTF Its the second of 3 Montana Travler designs I started on last year. The first being the MTN necker and these folders and there is a fixed blade utility knife coming at some point in the near future.

OK so whats a Montana Travler?

I chose the name for these knives based on a awesome American horse breed that is a very unique. The Montana Travler breed was developed in the USA and is well known for it's unmatched stamina and strength in the back country. Its a trusted and relied upon stallion. A tried and true American work horse!

My new Montana Travler knives are my work horse knives. I have a feeling they will live up to there name sake, and become known as a trusted and reliable tool.


On this thread I will be posting some images of the design and answering questions. Feel free to post any comments or questions here or send me a pm or email.

So the base design is a straight forward liner lock dressed in HHH damascus with beautiful yet durable handle materials. I am making a few with mammoth tooth per customer requests. But most will have ivory's and burl woods and other exotic handle materials that will serve well as the handles. File work and a few other custom features is sure to make these a very beautiful folder!

Heres a picture of the rough pencil draft of the design. Im sure they will morph a bit as I am making them. But the overall look and size should remail the same!

Blessings from Michigan

Heat treating the blades today. Sorry, No pictures. Its hard to snap photos and work with 1500 F. steel blades at the same time.. :)

I also have to Heat treat the bolsters and back spacers. This is so the damascus will all etch the same. Ill try and remember to take a photo of the bolsters in the oven B4 I quench them. :)

Looks great Randy. What material are you thinking in terms of the handle? Never mind, I just read the rest of your post. Should be killer. Do you have a price in mind?

Looks great, and I like the story behind the name, but I think that you should call them "Michigan Traveler" as they are a workhorse of your creation.

I know you guys are frying up there. You should come down to the cool south (well, midsouth anyway) and get some relief. We have been having a cool, wet summer. If this is Global warming then bring it on! :pirate1:

hehe randy it was so hot in the kitchen today I feel ya, when it's almost 90 degrees outside at 11pm it's crazy. I felt bad for the guys at the restaurant next to me, they had their smoker going all day, ugh musta been over 115 in there. I wonder what the heat gets like in your shop? must be really crazy.

HHH Knives
07-17-2013, 11:24 AM
It felt like a 115 in the shop yesterday for sure. The Heat treat oven was on most of the day working on a blade order for a client in NY. So between that and the temper oven running for 6 hrs. I imagine we were tickling 110 inside and 90++ outside.

I feel for you guys in the kitchen on these SUPER hot days. I drank at least 10 bottles of water yesterday to try and stay hydrated!

I want some Gar skin on a filet knife, would be appropriate. Too bad I have a filet with a seriously sexy koa handle, guess you can always use two filet knives.

Made some progress today on the blades. Ground in the swedge on them all and have about half of them rough ground. B4 the grinder and myself overheated. :) Called it a day on them and will try and get a early start tomorrow. There calling for a temp of 95 tomorrow. Im feeling these back to back 100+ temps. Really taking the pep out of my progress this week. :( I must be getting old!

Stay tuned for more progress photos.

Any PRE ORDERS. Please email me your final handle material requests. :)

Sorry about the delay in photos and info on this.

OK, so I screwed up and these will be delayed again.

I made a rookie mistake and drilled the lock side of the liners wrong on all of them! Dang It!

So. I have had to reorder Titanium and will have to re start on the liners as soon as it gets here next week. So, the July delivery dates will now be delayed.

Thanks for your patience and understanding. feel free to message me if you have any questions . OR call me if ya want to laugh at my stupid mistake!

Blessings
Randy.

I am working on these again and making some great progress. This was a first time using titanium liners for me. and I had some trouble taping the treads on these. Actually the folders have been fighting me at every turn, But I have finally started winning the fight this week! :) Im getting ready to start fitting blades and bolsters . and picking out scales and then ill do all the filework and well. I am hopeful that these wont take me much longer.

Thanks to all the guys that pre ordered and ar patiently waiting. :) It wont be much longer now!

I should have some update photos to share by this time tomorrow! :)

Blessings.

As promised here are some update photos. This project is behind schedule. and its starting to effect my other orders.

Please bare with me as I work on these and continue to get the promised custom orders out in a timely fashion. And Thanks for your patience.

So first I have a few images o the frames and bolsters As well a photo of the blades. Last few pictures are after rounding the corners on the bolsters and cleaning up the back spacers to flush out with the liners. :)

Next steps will be selecting handle materials for these. and then rough shaping the scales sets for all 10 knives. The I will filework each knife. So folders can be alot of work. and I expect to tear down these to pieces again and rebuild and tear down etc. Many more time B4 they will be close to completion. :)

God Bless YA

Im finally able to start to really feel how these knives are going to feel and look. Its a exciting part of the process when taking a design from pencil draft to completion. There is always a point in the build where ya go YEA.. This will be what I hoped and thought it would be when I sat down a drew the design!

Thanks for the comments and you patience to both folder buyers and my other clients who are patiently waiting on there orders!

More update photos ASAP. Getting ready to start file working the liners and back spacers on these! :)

God Bless YA

08-16-2013, 01:05 PM
Ok here are some update photos. Fileworked the liners and back spacers this week. YES this week was a full 4 days of fileworking!! :)

I did 10 different patterns. only 2 are similar to each other yet still different. Heading back out to get back to work on these.

Im almost ready to be ready to do another assembly and choose and apply handle materials to each knife. Then I will tear them all back apart for etch and finishing. then final assembly of each with blade and lock up tuning etc.LOLOL

I took on a big project expecting the best and its taking me more time then I expected! Yet I know the outcome will be worth the efforts. so I move forward happily! :D

Just wanted to share a few photos.

Thanks and God Bless

Folder number 1 is done! :) 9 More to go.

I have finally rounded the curve on these and am in the home stretch! Thank God! :)

This one is Tribal pattern damascus blade and bolsters. With titanium liners and damascus backstrap. Mammoth ivory handles with duel thumb studs set with Tiger eye. I think these materials really flow well together and complement each other well!

oh man Randy, gonna be hard to stay away from this post, that looks really great. It's special to see these take shape from an idea, you must feel like a million bucks once you get a project like this finished up. The whole package looks really good on this one, it all goes together very well, can only hope mine comes out looking half as sexy. Take care of her Brent, or abuse her, not sure what's better, either way don't let that sexy lady out of your sight.

Randy... You must have known I was just kidding.... <grin> It doesn't matter if I get #1, #4, or #10... I'm happy knowing I'm even getting one. And, it doesn't matter if I get it this week, or next month... I'm not worried. I honestly hope you know, I don't care how long it takes, I'd rather you take care of whatever needs taking care of, then trying to "rush" through a knife, just to make someone happy...

As long as I don't get #11 (which obviously won't exist, at least anytime soon) I'll be perfectly happy "WHENEVER" it gets done.

Take care and God bless!

Hey Randy, these are the nicest run of knives I think I have ever seen, thanks alot. Yes, I agree the musk ox looks super classy, I originally had asked Randy for some mammoth, but then changed my mind for something more conservative as an every day carry, so I opted for the musk ox. But, honestly after seeing the two bright blues, I could totally go for one of those too, I thought it might be too flashy, but those still look amazing to me. Just one question Randy, what's Citron? I know it's a weird citrus fruit, but what is that thumb stud? Looks super cool, and I am struggling to understand what it is, thanks again Randy, I couldn't be happier, bet it looks even better in person.

On another topic, would you let me know who does your leather sheaths. I would really like to get one made for this beauty.

Oh yes it is. I try to get my camera to see what you can see with your eyes but its a camera after all and can only do so much! The amazing thing about Musk Ox horn is its translucent depth. where you can see into it! These slabs are quite special in the figure that is there. Sorta a burly figure rather then the more curly looking figure of most slabs I use. Both are beautiful and awsome. buy these do look exceptional with this Tribal damascus Jr forged for me!! :)

This one is going to be heading to a fellow KKF member and friend Dave. :) I know he will be pleased!

God Bless YA!

:eek2: Holy ****!!!!! :fanning:

That is really, really incredible. Beautiful horn (understatement) -- and a great match to the damascus. It all comes together perfectly. I can't even imagine how much time it tales to make something look so natural.

Check it out.
Hello, I would like to invite you to check out the first ever HHH Knives Auction. This is a auction hosted on my web page. The first knife is not a kitchen knife. sry. But I will be from time to time offering a kitchen knife here. http://hhhcustomknives.com/hhh-auctions/

This will be a 7 day auction with a 10.00 start price no reserve. If you have any problems with the new software. or questions. Please contact me and let me know. [​IMG] I would love for the auction to be a great experiance for all.

If you would like to recieve info on future auctions.. Please take a second to send me a contact form from the web site, with the words AUCTION in the title to be added to the list..

I love the new web page as it allows me to post many pictures. So there are a dozen images of this knife there so you can see all the details. You can also see bid history, etc. [​IMG]

The software works similar to other online auction sites and is pretty easy to figure out. Dont hesitate to let me know if there is a glitch or problem as this is my first time using it and its all new to me! Signing up to bid and bidding was fast and easy.

When your there. Please share a link to the aucton on your other social media using the provided tags in the listing!!

Have fun and thank you for your support.

God Bless. Randy Haas, HHH Knives
