    The wooden tool attached to the "strap". It looks homemade. Whatsit?

    Not handmade, it's just a standard strap cutter, it has a little blade inside that will cut an even strap up to 4 inches or so. They're about as blocky and utilitarian as you can get but they work great.

    Yes, a well kept secret. I didn’t even “Like” photos and such on social media so’s not to tip my hand. ;)

    @Ron L I usually write a short Thank You note on the cards below, if there's anything you want me to write on Don's let me know.

    Amazing work!!

    John, just welcome him to the Clan. Or you can tell him what an awesome, conscientious, and thoughtful brother he has :rolleyes:, but he already knows. Because I don’t let him forget. :p:D Nah, just welcome him to the clan.

    Once I give him his blade, I’ll direct him to this forum and your other pages on FB or IG and he can check out the whole thing. I’ll include an obligatory mug shot.

    I can’t thank you enough for all the work and thought that went into this set.

    John, when you sent me shipping info and I saw USPS and it was in Detroit, where parcels go to die, I was like

    Then I saw it was out for delivery today, spotted the mail carrier, and was like:

    Couldn’t wait to open the box

    John, they’re beautiful! The work is exceptional. The Micarta shows better in person than photos; subtle but nice character. Nice size and the sheaths are awesome. There’s nothing that I don’t like. Can’t thank you enough.

    Now, for the presentation - I’m going to make him read the posts by Chris and you about the cowbell in the Purple thread, then direct him to my post where I called dibs for two, then I’ll hand it over. Welcome to the Clan. Pics to follow.

    Ha, that's too funny, GIFspeak is the best form of communication. When delivery was delayed I got a little nervous too. Glad to hear they made it there safe and sound. That was a really fun set to make knowing that they were going to brothers, especially twins.

    Welcome to the Clan of the Cowbwell Don!!

    So, all went according to plan. Again, muchas gracias to John. Obligatory photo

    But after a few drinks, things soon turned into a “mine is nicer than yours”, “Mom likes me better” typical evening. At least no guns were drawn and no police were called.
