Hello fellows at this time I would like to share one more cap iron screwdriver I just finished for a friend.
At this time I used a handplane front knob to hold the blade.This is by far the most easy to do in my opinion because more than 75% is already done ( a front knob itself).

I choose one of my old and useless front knob.In Brazil we can find many handplanes at junk yard almost for free.Normaly you can save parts and screws and never the body.

All rosewood.

To hold the balde with epoxy glue I made this round piece and cutted at half

The blade cutted from stainless steel plate (2mm thickness)

To avoid the blade to move in both direction I locked it in two grooves (1/8” chisel) and inserted the two semi circles and glued all together with epoxy glue.

Thanks for attention

Thanks for all comments.When I finished I almost hold it with me and do not delivery to my friend anymore but because I know how to do other I gave up to keep it.
Note:He didn’t know yet about the gift at that time.
