default How to make a Sheffield folding knife, Trevor Ablett slide show

I think folk will enjoy this slide show from Jon Henley of the Guardian showing and telling how to make a traditional Sheffield slip joint in 50 or so pictures. Nice to see a good bit of press for a traditional craft.

I still cannot work out why this great series is hidden away in the money section. You would think it would get better viewing in the environment bit...

Agree - took me ages to find it on Saturday I don't usually read the Money section, but turned to it in desperation when I couldn't find it elsewhere. Thought it might have been in "Review"

The slide shows do go on the front page of the site for the first 24 hours, the most visited homepage of any UK newspaper and Jon is working on a major feature for the G2 section but I agree they are tucked away a bit. Nice that we can see them all together online though it is building into a really nice online collection.
