Heya guys, i was wondering, does anyone know how yo machine a billet knife? my friends has one but is refusing to allow me to handle it. now i do several routines wit knives but ive never liked the funky fat rubber handled billet knives that are currently on the market and ive tried the poor boy billet and i found it was too small for my hands. so i was wondering can anyone PM me a picture of a good billet knife or help me find a way to build one into my own pocket knife?

Cheers!

It's a knife that allows you to sneak a billet into an envelope in the action of opening it.
Idk how they work though, I just know what they accomplish.

Porper sells a good one.

But consider this - how often in life have you are your friends used a knife to open an envelope?

While letter openers were common 40 years ago, most people do not use them.

The billet knife will draw attention to itself and invite suspicion.

There are better ways to accomplish what a billet knife does.

However, if you want one for your collection, Porper is the way to go.

in several of my routines my pocket knife plays an enormous role, ive built everything from a surelock feature to a corchange scale into it, but i wanted to add a billet loader to it as well

That's good that it will be an organic prop in your environment. I would have no idea how to tell you to build one. I believe there is a section on them in Corinda and probably in Tarbell as well.

I want to use one to get a billet in a soccer ball. Does anyone know if the poor boy knife is strong enough to cut a soccer ball?
