Liner Lock Knives

Peter Fronteddu & Stefan Steigerwald

With 181 detailed color photos and clear, step-by-step guidance from a top-tier knifemaker, this workshop-proven method guides intermediate to advanced level knifemakers to success in crafting a folding knife. The liner lock mechanism can be made relatively easily, it needs only few components, and it is—if constructed neatly—secure and durable. This book teaches how to construct both general kinds of liner locks: one uses the liner itself as an arresting spring (classic liner lock), and in the other the spring is made as an extra construction part and inlaid into the liner (“nested liner”). Here is the guidance you need to design and produce a liner lock knife on your own.
