    two pots of coffee and I'm ready for sheath making...lol. I had a choice word to say to myself when the buyer emaild back and said "can I get a leather sheath made so I can use it vertial and horizontal on my belt or molly pack"..... After I got over the inital shock at having to come up with something else, I had this idea. This knife sheath can be worn left side, right side, front side, or back, handle forword or backwards in vertical or horizontal orentation even upside down if you wish....BOOYAH!

    A new desighn I'm thinking about adding to the line up.I drew this knife up one morning goofing around, then decided to make it, I'm really digging it, its light, thin, slim sharp and pointy. this one is made from 1/8" 1095 with full flat grind so it gets very thin at the tip. Not a problem if used like a knfe. I plan on making it in a 5/32 version also dependion on intended use. Anyway let me know if its worty of the line up?

    8" total
    3 1/2" with 3 1/8 cutting edge, cut from 1/8" thich 1095
    handle is black/green g-10 with 9 1/16" pins and one 1/4" lanyard tube.
    sheath is kydex with vertical/horizontal belt clip.

    OK this is the last one from my vacation....from my regular job...lol, but as you can tell I was plenty busy at home. I got in a hurry to finish this one and forgot a very important part of the knife...the buyer wanted a stainless bolster on it, but I completly forgot to drill the holes until I took it out of the tool wrap and had one of those Oh crap moments. So I decided to just add some black and green micarta scales and be done with it. I will Start the replacement next weekend as I'm going hunting myself the next couple days.

    10 1/4" total
    blade is 5 3/8" 4 1/2 of cutting edge, 3/16" stock thickness s30v, blade has sand blasted finish on flat parts and hand sanded finish on bevels.
    handle is black and olive micarta, scales started at 3/8" so handle on this one thick and round.

    Thanks... I have not made a differentally heat treated blade in a while, back in the day I made almost all of them that way. I use to edge quench them, I find clay quenching to be easier. I'm not sure how much a differentally heat treated blade will come into play on a knife this size, but its there....

    I freakin HATE this thread!! I'm not even a "knife guy," but now I want one! You show us these knives that are works of art, but guess what, they aren't for sale. What a TEASE!!
