    Hmm, I don’t have a lot of experience with handle butts that low, should be interesting - what ever you think would work best is fine. I would request the concrete texturing treatment; that always looks good. Thanks for asking. :thumbsup:

    I was thinking a lower ride to clear a pack. Maybe some unobtrusive attachment points for lashing too, we'll see.

    Sounds good on the concrete texturing:thumbsup:

    lol Sheldon, you have a point there. Great minds think alike, and all that. ;) :D

    Interesting idea, I like it. :cool: If I'm carrying a pack for any length of time, I generally strap my knife to the belt of the pack, for that exact reason. Can't really strap a pack over your belt if there's a knife in the way.

    I'm onboard with both of these thoughts too. :)

    The knives look great John! :thumbsup:

    Now there are a couple of real nice functional looking knives, I like that Starry night micarta on the one. I have a little bit of brown and natural in the shop but haven't gotten around to using it yet.

    Oh I's steady craftin, busier than a one legged man in an ass kicking contest.

    As far as the knife world goes I finished etching 5 blades tonight, the 2020 Cowbell will be up for grabs this week (as soon as I sharpen it), I'm in the middle of designing sheaths for these Campers, mocking up a new 5" blade design, and patiently waiting the return of a 10 pound box I sent off for K&G stabilization.

    In the non knife world, a paragraph about five times as long, it's been a productive summer round cheer!

    Best kind of camping right there, when fires really matter.

    Unfortunately I'll be out of pocket for a bit, I shall return. Sorry about the delay on the sheaths gents.

    Safe travels, we'll be here when you return. p.s. Edna and I once drove into a freak blizzard in the Trinity Alps of NorCal, having to pull into a closed campground for the night until the storm passed and the roads were cleared - you're not kidding about the "when fires really matter." part. Now I carry about five different fire starting methods when travelings; Bic lighters don't count... :eek:

    I'm gonna give this sheath a go tomorrow and see how it feels on the hip before I finish out the other. I came up with some ridiculous designs but sometimes Less, is More;)
