    Fort Worth Knife Show

    Any collectors left? Any new ones?

    I never thought of myself as a collector, but I have, in fact, collected many, many of the world's finest knives for a few days at a time, ( and the neat thing is I get paid to do it). The very best part of it is the many very good and close friends I've gained as a result, makers, collectors...

    Randall Brown Snap Button

    If you do find an old sheath with the button intact, it will be destroyed during the removal and the button cannot be reattached.

    I've got a quandry

    TanKote will act as a resist and make the area water resistant. Dyes (any type), neatsfoot oil, or water for wet forming will not penetrate uniformly or completely. TanKote is the last application you should make. Wet form, Oil, Dye, then top finishes, at least that's my routine.

    CPK Boot Daggers

    The loaner dagger arrived and we'll get this party under way. I have eleven of you guys on the build list so it will be maybe as long as two weeks before the last sheath makes it to your door barring any unexpected delays.

    Lets see your CPK in Leather!

    @duramax: great design and execution, even greater job with that tricky stamp One very minor observation, your border stamp is a little weak compared to the depth of the central stamping. Great job overall!

    Leather Knives......

    Well, if you have been using a utility knife "for years" the that brings into question "newbie", but i digress. You almost answered your own question. Serious professional leather craftsmen almost all use a round knife and in many cases a dedicated straight flexible blade for skiving. There...
