Over the weekend I discussed the handle shape with Maarten. Shape A is the original shape but we're going to go for a shape like B so that it's a single curve in the centre. I had said that I was going to test it out with cardboard but this morning I got carried away and just went for it!!
A rough shape starting to form...
Lots more work to do on this side.
However in checking the liners fit, I have spotted a problem!
I instantly thought that I had drilled the holes in the wrong place so put one of the old scales on but the problem is still there.
I'm going to check with someone a bit more knowledgeable than me on slipjoints but I'm hoping that I can grind the top of the spring down to be flush with the back of the blade.
