    Finished up the sheaths for the other two knives. Three variations total. One pancake style leather neck carry only, with a ss tube and euro style stitching (difficult to get right), one fold over belt carry with western stitch, and the kydex you've already seen for cross draw. Could be a neck or standard belt carry also though. 20190416_165917.jpg

    Done, I'll be doing a final buff when the sheath is finished.

    That turned out great. The scales look amazing.

    Thank you sir
    Thank you, wait till you see the other knives I'll be working on. This will be a very busy year for me, lots of knives to finish. There's a few with very highly figured Hawaiian mango scales, I can't wait to get to.

    I love mango wood! You don't see it often enough.

    Thanks, semi-bummer as well, because my best piece was supposed to be for a personal knife. But someone wanted it for an order.
    Thank you. I'll be pretty busy these next few months with knives, I'm trying to prep a batch of close to 40 blanks for heat treat. HT is the biggest downtime, so I wanted to get it all done at once. This way it'll just come down to grind and finish.

    I'm considering a pass around on the Kephart necker, and Eggrolls. Would anyone be interested?

    Keep in mind, as testers- I do my own heat treat. So these won't be the absolute best they can be. But if enough people like the Eggroll pattern, I'll do a run of them.

    I haven't been on bcusa in a long time. Mostly due to lack of time, and a hectic last few years, but I plan to get back on there soon. For now, my brain can only keep up with one forum at a time.

    I'll start a second thread once I'm ready to send them out. The wharncliff pattern will be staying with me, so I can do my own testing. But after I get the batch from HT, I'll put one together for a pass around also.

    Kephart is already done, but I want to send out the Eggroll patterns at the same time.

    Scandi grind on a tiny blade that's 3/16" thick looks pretty nuts.
