I hated to drill in to the leather, but only way to make it sturdy.
Got bored today so added texture to the spine. I tried to do the HD on the screws but didn't turn out so well so I'll end up texturing those as well. I finally have coming what I need to etch the HD logo and name but unfortunately the logo won't have the words... Feeling sad about that. Oh, and have a Harley pin coming for the top of the molle.
I'm wondering - this spine texture, won't it attract rust too easily
Honestly I have no idea. I don't have issues with rust where I'm at, but nothing a little sanding won't cure. I can always add texture again.
My matching Dark Flat Earth Esee 6 & Izula both sporting The Knife Connection Camo Mil-Spec scales and new leather sheaths. Ferro rod is LT Wright.
I'm so pissed of right now.... All the work, money and time I put in to this thing and the etch had to screw up. Never had an etch go this bad, ever! I did the same things as I've always done, so no idea how this turned out so crappy. Uuuuggghhhhhh............
Ouch... That's a shame.
I'd ry to sand it out, on either stones or sanDpaper, assuming it''s not etched very deep.
Most parts are too deep to sand, I wish they weren't. Trying to think of a way to cover it up, but without etching a lot more, I'm not sure. I'll just have to deal with it but it's sad cause the sheath setup is pretty cool, imo.
Thats a shame. Hope you can figure something out for a good coverup.
Rock it man. Looks like a mean knife that someone has been using for years.
Well I'm trying a mustard patina, however it won't go with the texture on the spine so I'll probably patina that too. I added a few things to the sheath system though. Harley pin and biker chain lol. I have a Harley snap coming for it also to replace the one on the molle. And made a couple "Harley" tins as well.
It's not too bad..
Fat wood harvesting today with my Esee 6. I must say that I absolutely love this blade and admire just how powerful it can be!!
Welp, it's as good as it's gonna get. Still waiting on the snap to get here but other than that, it's done. I wish I could buy just the blade from esee so I can redo it but ah well.
I'm sure y'all are sick of seeing this thing but it's finally complete!! Got the snap in today and put on. Blued over the patina and lightly sanded to give a well used look. Going up for sale
Very cool man!! I did something to my 6 today too. Will try to post a pic later hopefully
Thanks man, and yeah, post it up! Love when people make their esee's their own.
Really like the way it turned out.
Sweet man, that looks great!
