    This could call for a kickstarter, I'm thinking a 125k goal. Five thousand dollar buy in gets you two doohickeys AND a certificate of authenticity?:D

    On a serious note that's a great idea Embry, something like would be perfect.

    I appreciate your insights, John. Since I already own much of the necessary equipment, I think we could rein the costs in under 100K. For the 5K buy-in, I'm thinking parchment certificates with 24K lettering, if that works for y'all...

    With everything undyed, at least it'll all match :)

    I'm still snickering over your the first post, I can picture it as a Monty Pythin skit.

    I think they're taking the daily news from old Monty Python sketches.

    Hey, John, did you make those Serrano sheaths out of the same thickness of leather as the Cowbell sheaths?

    I did, but I skive down the Cowbell sheaths quite a bit so they taper and aren't blocky.

    John, once out of the sheath, it's fine, still smooth, but there's plenty to hold onto, especially if the rip cord is tucked into the hand; it's the initial pinkie grasp/pull effort. Honestly, I wouldn't change a thing with the design of knife or sheath - but if I was to order another, I'd probably go with a grippier handle material.

    Snakeskin micarta satin Game Warden added for reference. ;) :thumbsup: (Probably my favorite micarta of all time. :cool:)

    IMG_5263.jpg

    The Game Warden model is almost exactly the same length as the Serrano, but it's got a lot more junk in the trunk (thicker stock, and much larger diameter handle), but it fits my XXL hands well. One of the only Busse without a lanyard hole somewhere aft of the handle slabs. A popular model for good reason, but one of the smaller Busse.

    Adam is probably right, the Magnum Bear Cub is probably very close in size to the Cowbell Pocket Blade. Can't wait!!! :D

    While these pocket blades were intended to be a more entry-level Redmeadow knife, I think if you keep making them they're going to become your signature knife, and something you'll become very well-known for. Not a bad thing either, IMO. :cool:

    Ha right? I'm stitching the third one up now. The pocket clip model is pretty cool.

    Pocket clip is for a left front pocket, I think it's gonna turn out well.
