    Starting on a good size batch, still need to finalize a few dimensions and drill holes, then these will be off to heat treat. I've also got about 20 other full size blanks that will be in the same ht batch.

    Kydex done for one of the kepharts. Much respect to the pros that work with this stuff, I havent made too many sheaths with it, but it's a pain in the ass trying to find tune a good fit. Also trying these rubberized strap things Shane told me about.

    Thanks, I look forward to getting these knives out there. It's been a really tough last few years, especially recent months. So it's nice to get back into things.
