“Fieles” polished deer stag antler “jug/pitcher” like folding knife. Ref: 034
“Fieles” folding knife made from a polished deer stag antler with a “jug/pitcher” shape. The inspiration from this folding knife go back to those memories of my grandfather plowing the corn fields. Due to my young age I was the one responsible of the jugs, those jugs contained water and wine to calm down the thirst of the day laborers and beast of burden. That’s why this folding knife have this jug like shape, giving this folding knife a beautiful aesthetic, an ergonomic and good looking handle.
Due to the intrincate structure of this handle and blade, I had to make it without any locking or blocking system, like a “fieles” folding knife. (It would remind to a higonokami, but without folding that easily). This folding knife can be carried without any trouble in those countries with a tough or rigid weapon laws, like the United Kingdom, since it comes with no locking system at all.
Here’s a quick picture of the making of this folding knife:
The handle is made on a handmade nickel silver frame, this structure ends on the bolster, lower bolster (rebajo), the liners and the spine which is decoracted using a file and burin. The frame is wrapped and torned with a polished deer stag antler handle with a mosaic pin inscrustation and a beautiful studded pattern. Due to the torned shape of this folding knife it looks extra shinny which makes it even more impressive.
Mirror polished fully grinded blade made on 440 steel with a length of 9 cm. (3,54″). The blade comes with a little “uñeta” or notch to ease the opening.
The blade’s thickness is 2,5 mms. (0,1″).
The polished deer stag antler handle of 11,5 cm (4,52″) is bedecked with a inlaid mosic pin and a studded nickel silver pattern, this whole aesthetic is highlighted by the bolster and lower bolster made on nickel silver.
The overall length is 20,5 cm (8,07″) while the blade is locked down. Once the blade is folded its length is 11,5 cm (4,52″).
