    Thanks that means a lot coming from you!!! I have always held you in such high regard and I respect you so much!!!! I feel that this country we have been blessed to be in, may not be perfect and we have our issues. But by Gods grace we are still the greatest nation on this planet, and the United States of America will always come first to me.

    Nothing special. Just a pair of black leather pants for a needy knife.

    This clip from Jantz doesn't have the best retention. I just got some in from Paul Long today, feels like they're going to have a much tighter fit.

    Yup, much better retention and a slimmer design to boot. I did another for the 2.7 since I had the pattern handy then whipped up one for a Carothers EDC as well.

    After their first coat of Tan-Kote.

    Finished this one up for an old spec Survive! 4.1 also. I dyed it with Fiebing's Ox Blood then did block dyeing around the edges with black, I might have to do this again, the colors popped pretty well.

    Finished the batch for the CPK EDC's. I probably wasted more time than was smart figuring out how to put these things together but it's good to have a different process down.

    I love how this one came out.

    One coat of Tan-Kote on this sheath for a new spec S!K 7/7.

    SUPER excited about how this came out. The arrowhead design sucks for me because I stink at guessing the angle needed to lay the stamp in, it has to be stupidly consistent for each line. The moons and mojo and whatever must have been aligned just right for this to turn out like it did.

    You're actually totally welcome to it. I don't like how the pattern came out offset to the body of the sheath so I was just going to give it away to someone, might as well be to you! PM you address to me.

    Yep, seriously :D Quit trying to send me money! If my sheaths are good enough for my standards, believe me I'll charge a good chunk of change for them, or I'll just keep them.

    I listed a CPK FK left handed sheath with a dangler for over $100, nobody even made an offer at it but honestly I don't give one ****. I busted my ass on that sheath, it's solid, functional, and tough as hell. If it's a good piece I'd rather light it on fire than give it away. By the same token though, I'd rather get poked in the eye with a dull stick than sell something to someone that isn't just top shelf amazing.

    So my nephew just got a job at a Renaissance festival this fall. He asked if I could make him a leather Viking style helmet. This is what I have stamped and formed so far. How is it looking to this point?
