Basic Slipjoints with Chris Crawford (Knifemaking DVD)



5 in stock


In 2001, I put together an online tutorial demonstrating how to build a slipjoint. Then in 2009, I released a DVD demonstrating the process. As you can imagine, my methods changed between 2001 and 2009, and they have continued to change since then.

I’m replacing the DVD that I released in 2009 with two new titles, Basic Slipjoints and Intermediate Slipjoints.

In this two DVD video set I demonstrate how to make a basic slipjoint using basic knifemaking tools. If you are new to knifemaking, and you are interested in making a pocket knife, then this video is for you.

The knife that I make in this video has an O1 blade and spring, G10 scales, and nickel silver pins.

Some of the topics covered are:

– Building a knife from a paper pattern

– Fitting up the blade and spring

– Blade grinding with a jig

– Heat treating the blade and spring

– Cold bluing the blade and spring

– Knife assembly
