    Was able to finish this quickdraw sheath for my Sher Balance today. I set it up so it can be worn on the belt or with a baldric strap. I tried to match up the markings on the Sword of Shiva. My "S" is more of an "Z" but it's close. The beltloop is a separate piece that is sewn on. Light isn't that great today but these pictures will have to do for now.

    Oh Man, that's Shweeet! :thumbup:

    Purty too. Outstanding work. Love the sword of Shiva tooling in the leather. Neat idea.

    Very cool rig. What stain or dye did you use? I made a quick draw belt sheath for my 12" AK which works pretty good. Though yours looks better then mine.

    I use Fiebings dark brown dye diluted with plum wine. It's the only alcohol I have.

    Sun just popped up so I took a couple more pics. One cool thing is that it fits my other 2 WW2's as well. :D

    You've saved me a lot of brain-strain. I've been thinking about designing such a project.
    Thanks

    That is some seriously nice work!:thumbup: I really like the overall design too - looks solid, and looks like it would carry well. Again - nice job!

    OH yeah, that is one good looking sheath---and it looks very comfortable to carry. I really like the warm patina from the Fiebings dark brown dye, and the markings are outstanding. They will help balance the energy of the blade and make it feel at home in its new sheath!

    Very VERY cool, especially matching the SoS markings.

    A baldric is the only way to go with the 1/2" and 25" khuks.

    How well can you draw with it riding that high (baldric pic)?

    When I wear mine baldric style, I wear it crossdraw, works much better for me.

    Wow, looks awesome, great job! I love the overall style and the dye job matches well too. Curious how it draws though, are you a lefty? The pic as baldric would seem awkward being that high up for a righty.

    It is very easy to draw on the right side. Since that side of the sheath is open it can be worn higher and draw without difficulty.

    Dragon, send me an email.
