That turned out well.
This is a couple pictures Paul Long sent me.
Drop loop in Brown with Anaconda inlay, and the other,
Sash style with flat loop in russet with Full Quill Ostrich inlay to match the handle. Both sheaths fully leather lined as usual.
Thanks for posting brother! The set looks awesome together and when you bought it I never even stopped to think it would be such a nice match Glad you are happy!
Was getting back into the shop tonight and made a pretty rookie mistake. Forgot to wet the leather before beveling and hammered a bit hard when it wouldn't take. Number 5 turned into number 4.5 and I had to start number 5 over. You can see the splits all along the bevel lines of the red version.
Anyway, the David the Gnome tribute is moving along.
Very brave to share your mistakes.
You're a manly one, you.
Get used to it! I kept every sheath I screwed up in a box for the longest time, then I would pull them out once in a while and look them all over as a reminder of what not to do. Eventually it got so big I tossed them. I still keep bigger screw-ups around for a while as reminders.
Yup I have a box tooooo lol
I keep this one around to beat myself over the head with lol. Wow that piece went south fast !!! Couple small mistakes added up quickly lol.
So mistakes happen just keep going
LOL.. it's amazing how fast they can go south!
Lol yeah it is !!!!
Glad you like it That sheath is a tank !!!!
It's a keeper for sure. My grandkids will be fighting over these one day.
Thanks, @Grenock! I’m gonna jump in on this with a sheath for my DEK1.
I picked up a Sagewood spool sheath for my hand finished FK2 and wrapped it in about 25’ of paracord. It looks like it will be perfect for my bow hunting set up.
If you look closely in the last pic, you can see where the FK2 cut into the leather as it slid down the paracord. Dang these things are sharp!
Nice sheath !!!!! Yup those CPKs are crazy sharp !!!!!!
Is it my eyes or is that a Bad idea FK2 ?
Is is a bad idea and and I'm glad I made another "bad" decision.
Lucky it didn’t slice right through !!!!
Beautiful knife and sheath
