      thank you,


      I have been making folders only a few years now. The technique is now at the level that I like much. Hardened stainless pivot, stainless hardware and screws. The friction folders are legal in a lot of places worldwide. Blade length can be an issue, but for most models bade length can be adapted to the law in the counry it is going to.

      I started making knives because I couldn't afford the knives i wanted. the hobby has grown and pays for itself ( that makes my wife happy).

                Welcome!
                I used to spend time in Brussels. Whenever I had enough time, I took the train to Antwerp - what a difference. Everyone looked happy. Brussels is very dour - maybe speaking French gives you a permanent frown.

                      Gday Jan , a great display of knives, I love the Japanese influence in your work. Along with some trench art I have one Belgian knife in my collection it is marked Licot a Namur.

                        Hello, welcome to the forum. Would love to go to Belgium one day as I found out 7 years ago my great grandfather came from there somewhere. And meet my grandfathers siblings and their kids in England one day too. ONE DAY I WILL GET THERE...
