    While this shouldn't even need to be said, apparently it does.

    I reserve the right to refuse requests from anyone for any reason.

    I've dealt with some of the best people I could imagine since I started making sheaths a couple years ago. Knifenuts, makers, LEOs, military, and outdoorsmen. I enjoy the correspondance with my customers and appreciate their business more than they know.

    That said, I do this because I enjoy it and I'm not gonna deal with negative people for a few dollars. It's not worth the headache. I'll eat ramen noodles cooked over a coffee can before I'll bend over and take it from someone who thinks their money is worth more than my serenity.

    I'm an easy going guy and have only refused two orders in my time doing this that weren't based on my inability to meet requirements. One for a manufacturer's product line when said manufacturer is a known design thief and one from a maker who is completely out of his mind. That said, I'm posting this because it's apparently needed.

    If I have flat out refused to make a sheath or sheaths for anyone it's not because I don't need the money, it's because you're an asshole and I have no interest in dealing with assholes.

    Just because you are in business doesn't mean you have to deal with people's BS. Good for you, and good luck.

    Thanks, my friend. As I said, all the people I've done work for amaze me with how cool they are. Basically just one dipshit knife maker with an ego problem that set me to rant mode.

    Odd thread to reply to this in considering the context of the OP, but I'm gonna say no. Don't know you and not saying you're an asshole, but there's enough drama surrounding you here that I'm not comfortable interjecting myself into it. Sorry.

    Thanks my friends, and kudos to roxtar for putting that project together.

    First, when I visited Richard I got to see the knives going overseas. Well done guys.
    Second, although I have never needed a kydex sheath so far, if I ever do and if you will sell to me, I will gladly buy from you. This thread has sold me on your integrity.
