    Mine is standard handle with race grind. My #8 post stated thick grind but I changed it offline when Jo contacted me for payment.

    Hope this helps.

    Hey guys, I have created a button for the sheaths on the Mashed Cat website (www.mashedcat.com). There is no photo yet, but I will get on up as soon as I can. Like Don has said, I have his knife and will be using it as the template mold knife. His knife is the Regular (large) handle with the Race edge profile. Sheath will be setup for competition with an additional slide locking mechanism and be able to be lanyard ready while knife is sheathed. If anyone has other questions please send me an email.

    Thank you Don for lending your knife for a few sheaths! Much appreciated!!

    Received my choppers today. Holy sh*t, these things are a little unnerving when you grab them. Seriously, I pick them up and am instantly telling myself "You better be careful with these, a$$hole." Nothing else in the line up has made me feel that way.

    The race edge might be the sharpest damn knife I have ever laid hands on.

    Excellent work and many thanks to the CPK team, these are really something special. I am thankful I convinced myself to get them. If you are a CPK collector and chose to pass on these, you made a mistake. These are their best work.

    Thanks for the update @Grenock, and yes I am sad that I didn’t get in on this offer.:confused: Passed on the Shiv when they first came out, should have learned my lesson.:oops: Oh well Nathan will find another project to keep him busy.

    Hey everyone! Just wanted to let you all know I will have Don's, Dan Keffeler chopper for one more week. If you are interested, check the Mashed Cat website and place the order so I can get a sheath molded for you. I'd also like to hear from some of the folks who have received their sheaths and see what they think. ~Eric

    I received mine. Great sheath, excellent fit and finish. I really like the room provided for the lanyard. I did however replace the slide / securement screw with a larger one that is easier to manipulate, not that the original was bad or anything, just a little small in my opinion.

    So does sliding that screw on the left up "lock" the blade in?

    It is a really nice sheath. I love mine! IMO that lockinglmechanism is the nicest one out there.
