    Hey All,
    Just finished up this sheath for a friend, it is a beast of a blade for sure. He wanted it done in gator, and did not want an inlay but the whole front in gator hide. I used a piece from a locally harvested gator, he also wanted leg tie downs and a d-ring type belt attachment. Been doing the d-ring for a bit, it give larger blades some movement when working or walking. The gator was tanned in its natural color and man it tough stuff. He was very happy when it came home.
    Hope ya like it.

    Man that looks good. the color of the alligator makes it look distressed and very much like the beast of a knife it holds. you should be proud of that one.

    That does look great. The gator really does match the knife quite well. Semper Fi brother
