    Nicely made (Japanese), lightweight folder here for summer.
    A thin, sharp cutter.

    Like new, think I only opened an envelope or two with it.
    Handle has been kept waxed. Blade, lightly mineral oiled

    Still here: for sale OR trade.

    And no, that is not a booger there in the rear star pin... just dried wax (wood not ear).

    Can you please let me know how thick it is? I'm looking for a thinner folder where I can rip off the scales and put on some koa But I know I won't carry it if it is overall too thick.
    Thanks,

    Stefan

    Stefan,

    The liner and frame side steel thickness is about 1/16".

    The handle is 9/16" overall at it's thickest and where the Blackwood tapers, it narrows to 7/16" overall.
    This is a thinner "gentleman's" folder and almost feathery light.
    Would easily work as a pocket carry.

    Construction-wise, it appears to lend itself to re-handling.
    Six point torx screws, I believe.

    1/4" Koa slabs would be more than sufficient for shaping and would look ...
    Hope this answers any questions.

    Best,
    wayne

    ps, there are some top flight (higher end) folder makers living in the islands in Tom Mayo, Ken Onion, Keith Ouye, and Stan Fujisaka.
