Liner Lock Design

Liner Lock Design

with Allen Elishewitz

Allen Elishewitz is a Texas knifemaker who became interested in knives at a very young age. His many years of training in the different martial arts, along with his experiences as a Recon Marine, have given Allen the perfect background to design both defense and utility knives.

Allen started making knives part time while he was in college studying Criminal Justice and Fine Arts, and he decided to become a full time knifemaker after graduating. He’s been making knives since 1988, constantly researching, refining, and developing the craft.

In this video Allen shows how he designs his tactical folders. Not only does Allen show how to design, but he also stops to talk about the theory behind why he does it the way he does. While the focus of this DVD is on designing liner locking knives, some of the techniques demonstrated will be applicable to many other types of folder designs.

The simple tools Allen uses for designing are:

  • A Ruler, Mechanical Pencil, & Architect Pen
  • Circle and Sine Curve Templates
  • French Curves
  • 45/45/90 and 30/60/90 Drafting Triangles
  • Drafting Compass
  • Vernier Calipers
  • Lightbox and Paper
