Imperial toothpick I picked up because I liked the color of the bone and it looked warm. For now it has a queen blade on it, I have a friend making me a blade to swap out. The knife feels great in your hands, nothing like aged hand worn scales :D

Thank you very much for the nice comment !
It is a conversion . but the blade is from a Queen. I have some blades for the Queen Jet 25 knives. So I used one of them. The kick spring and sear are handmade And I used the Queen plunger system for opening. The sear is hard to make. I take some 1/4" round stock and put it in my drill press and basically hold a file on it until it fits in the hole in the blade. Then I use sand paper to get rid of the rough spots . turn it around and file it until it fits in the hole I make in the front liner which is round on 2 sides and flat on the other 2 that way the sear doesnt turn when the knife is closed or the sear turns it would just open. then I file just a little bit down from the top so the button will fit on it. I them hold it in my dremel and buff the crap of both end so its shiny ,then heat treat and temper it. I had another knife guy make me some of the sears because he has a mill and a lathe but they were expensive. I kept one so I know the mine are close in size.
Sorry I didnt write this sooner. I appreciate your comment Thank You.
There are some knives I find easy and others that just wind up in the parts box
