Tutorial Folded stainless steel handle and tang pin balisong

What you neet

Material
steel for blade
stainless steel plate
2 pivots
4 screw(M3)
2 tang .
4 washer

Tool
To fold a vise, hammer, blade+washer thickness steel place,
To cut hack saw, band saw, angle grinder
To grind file, sandpaper, angle grinder, belt sander, backstand.
To heat treat Blow torch, torch, forge, heat treatment oven, oil or water :D

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

To fold the steel, you put the plate in the vise to the folded highness you want. You put the two plier wrench , you fold to more than 90°, after you press the plate in the vise. You use the hammer (on an anvil or something strong) on the U you obtain in order to straighten it with the thickness plate in the u :)


Image

After the folding

Image

To the angle grinder i cut the place where the blade will go. more or less 2 cm deep.

Image

Steel plate, ink, some draw....

Image

After some bandsaw work.

Image

It's shaped.

Image

i clean the part i cut with the angle grinder.

Image

I draw the middle of the blade

Image

The scale are in position

Image

I point the futurs holes.

Image

3.8mm

Image

I reamed to 4mm the pivot, the tang place stayed to 3.8mm

Image

Drilled and reamed

Image

I point the futurs holes in the handle.

Image

3,8mm

Image

Reamed to 4mm

Image

I build it in order to see where i have to not grind around the pivo
Image

Draw of the futur handle.

Image

I cut with the bandwaw.

Image

It begin to seem to be a balisong

Image

Open

Image

I shaped a bit with a 60 grit belt.

Image

I did the choild with dremel rotary burr.

Image

Cleaned everything with 240 belt

Image

My grind plied, (simply O1 hardened pieces with a stainless piece and two rolled pins.)

Image

60grit

Image

120 grit

Image

It's thin before HT

Image

Lazy fileworked

Image

Propan torch oil hardening

Image

Hardened and degreased. (to not too much dirt my belt)

Image

The grind is white in order to see the color during the flash tempering

Image

Flash tempering, the point is a bit darker, but it was 4mm too long, the point had been decreased after to go in the handle :). And i temperered generally a bit more the point of the balisong.)

Image

240 grit

Image

500 grit

Image

My poor stencil.

Image

Electro etching

Image

I decreased a bit the diameter of the tang in 100c6 hardened.

Image

Everythin is on the spot, at the right size and polished.

Image

Tang cup with the rotary burr.

Image

Open

Image

I cut the screw and polished the cut.

Image

The pivot are decreased to the right size.

Image

Polishing.

Image

15 parts

Image

500 grit to create the edge, some buffer to complete the work.

You have a small balisong not too much "bling bling". the aim is to use the same idea of the folded handle that i use to my Cardo No Kami.
It's thin, and cool to flip even if it's a bit short and thin to offer all the possibilty of a full size balisong.

9cm closed, , 3,2 cm widht, 7mm and 1cm to the thickest, open 15,3 cm, 6 cm sharp. XC75 blade full hardened, gold flash tempered. Hardened tang pins. 74g.

Could be an idea to it to the side of the pivot. In the other side, it could be dangerous :lol: :lol: :pirate_sail:

I don't like clip, i put it away on most of the knife i have with one :).

I make clip when man ask me :). Even it's without in the bottom of the pocket :D, or maybe with a sheath (if man ask ))
