    here is a quick picture of the pocket sheath that John made for me. Sorry I haven’t been on here lately but work has been crazy with the covid -19 and homeschool an 11 year old.

    It was a little tight so I wrapped the handle with tape and let sit for a day now it’s perfect the knife is snug but comes out nicely. I have a couple of pocket sheaths from one of the big guys that only does leather work and I like this one better.

    Perfect, I formed it tight hoping it would wear in, it's a lot easier to stretch leather after its formed than to shrink it!

    I have a question.

    How do you spell 'yay' when the context is an amount or distance?

    For example, how thick do I leave the edge before heat treat? Bout yay much

    Yay in this case is around .03 inch or when my eyeball says that's good.

    Just wanted to follow up on this. They're quite similar size-wise but the difference in blade thickness is pretty significant.

    Also wanted to add. Both the knife and sheath are gorgeous and as small as this knife is I foresee it getting carried a lot. Hope to add a few more of John's blades to my collection in the future.
