Custom Slipjoints

716 10
Got on Ken Erickson's list after seeing his work on BladeForums.
My # came up and boy did he deliver !!

Ken was a total pleasure to work with . His communication skills are top notch , only surpassed by his craftsmanship. I received constant email updates and even was blessed with a few in process pictures to keep me drooling ( and greeting the mailman every day at the door ).

Before the work on the knife began , Ken called me to work out the details. I told him what I was looking for , and he certainly covered in +10 !

The fit and finish is spot on , not to stiff to open , yet extremely secure when opened. The spine is flush in the closed , open and 1/2 stop position.
And man as good as it looks , it has performance to match , this sucker can cut !!

Specs,
ATS-34 blade and spring ( has half stop )
410 milled, relieved liners and bolsters
flat ground, as ground finish on blade
cut swedge
brown paper Micarta scales jigged

I have always wanted a custom slipjoint , I am very satisfied with my 1st Erickson , I plan to get at least 2 more as time allows.

I have found my EDC tri-fecta. ( ok 4 fecta as my Remington slip joint is always nearby).
Strider PT CC , Rinaldi Matrix , and Erickson 3.5 EDC



people might look at me a bit strange if they knew I actually carried and used these 3 all on a daily basis :eek:
I have had the Erickson for about 2 months now and it has been in the pocket ever since , cuts like a razor too. Glad I got on his list when I did , as his list is now at about 18 months + , I ordered another anways :)

these slipjoints and lockbacks are addictive , especially coming from someone who has always been into the non-traditional folders ( what some call tacti-cool ).



rather than just stuff this lovely slipjoint in my pocket , I made it a proper pocket sheath. :bthumb:

that is a Lone Wolf Loveless City Knife... as far as I know , they were recently discontinued but some places may have some in stock... have seen some on ebay recently as well.

Nice slip joint , with half stop on the blade. Green Linen Micarta scales :)

Ken is a great guy to talk with as well , as a hobbyist knifemaker it was a treat to be able to talk to him after the sale as he took the time to answer many questions regarding what I was doing wrong in making my first slip joint.

I rank him up there with the best there are.

Mighty fine offer Tuck , but I will to have to pass on that.. the only 10/22 I have is my middle sons , and his stock had to be shortened 1 1/2 inches to fit him.

I am a .22 bolt gun guy myself :)
