    AVOID River City Sheaths/Mike Sastre

    You know, I owe you an apology, because I knew this shop didn’t keep commitments several months before you dealt with him, and didn’t post here. I was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt. My experience was a kydex sheath and g-clip order for a vintage Cold Steel Pro Guard, and it was...

    Adding a Firesteel loop - leather drop and kydex

    Came up with this solution: seems tight and holds the steel well. The zip ties and strap prevent the tube from rolling around to the front or back of the sheath. This will do until I can come up with something better. I also picked up this same style sheath (from Lamnia in Finland, for the...

    Adding a Firesteel loop - leather drop and kydex

    Hey Guys, I have a couple of Fallkniven factory black leather dangler sheaths for an A1 and an S1 (used for an NL4 which is the same length blade). I could spend on a new sheath with a sharpening stone pouch and firesteel loop, but these dangler sheaths are nice work and I don't want to waste...

    Small tek-loks?

    I noticed that as well doing a search yesterday, most folks are out. However, GPKnives has the small Tek-Lok's in stock. I just picked one up, along with two large Tek-Loks. At the same time, the Spyderco G-clip is pretty much an equivalent or some would argue better alternative to the small...

    D2 Steel And Chasing The Burr?

    I just finished a D2 blade (AG Russell Ti-Fist Titanium/CF Framelock) using a SM and finishing with a standard leather strop (on a block) with green chromium oxide. Took my time on it, and turned it into a razor. The trailing edge movement off the strop took off any residual burr on the edge...

    Flitz is Making my Blades Cloudy

    Try Simichrome polish instead. I seem to get a brighter final fish with that. Flitz is great, but slightly more abrasive I think. For the finest final polish I use micromesh polishing cloths used in sculpting. The highest grit is marked "12000", but I'd say that equates to about a 2000 or...

    Knife Art 21 CF Handle

    I just bought my first Sebenza (after wasting years only buying the CRK fixed blades and missing out), and went with the KnifeArt CF large 21. I was expecting the CF to be very slick, and it is smooth, but has a slightly matte look and feel to it. It hard to describe, but it’s not like the...

    Ka-Bar Becker Sheath Options? BK22?

    Thanks for the great information on the sheaths and Julio, good to know. I think all of the Camillus sheaths I have have a hard kydex insert in a nylon sheath as Travis says, and hold the knife pretty well with no rattling. I've been thinking about a kydex rig for the BK2 and BK10 so will get...

    Ka-Bar Becker Sheath Options? BK22?

    Thanks for the info! So guess I have a kind of an "old" BK22 then WRT the sheath. Thanks for the model numbers on the green-handled ones; very striking. The older knife finishes were pretty smooth so I never thought about stripping them, but looking at these clear-coated blades I can see the...
