    I ask because we just got a Christmas gift that was one of those along with an item that is a handled piece of skinny flat metal slightly bent towards the end and a bowl with thin cloth on it. We had no idea what it was. It's a Danish sourdough bread making kit.

    Finished a couple sheaths for a couple knives I’d made before Christmas. First time using water Buffalo and Chicago screws. What do you guys think?

    Thank you! My wife, kids and I came up with the name Mythical Beast Forge and both of those are prototypes for my model called the Siren. I ended up making the new version with a little more narrow and recurved blade.

    Just finished 2 of the 3, now I have to make sheaths. The knife with natural micarta is almost identical to the pass around blades. The only difference is the stock thickness and it will have a black scale on one side.

    Not a leather worker by any stretch, but am definitely a “figure it out if you think you can” sort of person. So when a knife I ordered didn’t come with a sheath I knew I was gonna have to make one. I knew kydex would be a lot more easy, but the knife was begging for leather, and I had some laying around. I went with a Hudson Bay style sheath. Stitched with artificial sinew and currently wet forming it. All in all, definitely some stuff I would do differently next time, but I like it enough to wear it, so considering it a success. More pics later. F365D3D5-5516-4A1C-9735-3DDD3E35B3F7.jpeg
