Introduction: Spring Loaded House Key Sliding Knife (In Development)

A newer updated version of my House Key Balisong (Butterfly Knife) with a different concept to it.

Tell me what you think, other than the fact that the pictures are blurry. (pictures in the future will be better)

Updated: 08/03/2010 - showing some designs and concepts.

Updated: 01/30/2011 - the last five pictures show whats been going on.

Updated: 03/22/2011 - I will be entering the Makerbot contest with this one. The pictures on this page are old and a lot of changes have been made. I'm sure you'll be impressed once you see the finished product.

Updated: 06/29/2011 - I finished it. I didn't win but i'm still proud the way it turned out. To check out the finished product click here .

Thanks! The pictures you see up there are failed attempts and unforeseen problems within the design. I'll be posting new photos before the end of the month so that people can see the changes i have made but those changes will probably change soon too.

I have an idea for you. I don't know what you are going to have for housing. My idea is the housing would have a J shaped slot and a lever attached to the the key. It would work like a bolt action shotgun. I am working on a retractable usb drive in a hot wheels car that uses this idea.

Thanks for the idea. I'm gonna have to think about it though because i'm already on the 4th blueprint design.

I think it's awesome, can't wait for the finished product. Would love to see an Instructable when it's done instead of just a slide show though.
