    I suppose a bunch of storm trooper themed sheaths/holsters aren't out of the question now? Or I convert my equipment over to make helmets. Lots of holloween costume helmets.

    You could do kydex on one side, leather on the other.

    Or...

    If you make any for the FK2, I’d take one.
    A TK-421 sheath to go with my Shadow Trooper sheath.

    Well, apparently I haven’t got my fix for Paul Long leather quite yet. I am sending a DEK1, an MC and a UF back down to @sheathmaker this week. He still has one of my Shivs on hand as well. You all are welcome to use any of them for an order. I would suggest any of you who got in on the DEK1 pre-order that might want one of these sheaths, go ahead and get in touch with Mr. Long. He should have my knives in hand by end of week. He can keep them as long as you guys need sheaths made and he has orders.

    How about some paper fiat money Micarta? Has anybody ever considered making handles from some paper money? It’s actually cotton, and not money but.
    I was thinking about paving my driveway with pennies, because they’re cheaper than rocks, but there are none at the bank any more.
    then I started thinking about making knife handles out of printed money. Currency sorry.
    I know that they’re printing it like crazy, and we’re gonna need to get rid of it somewhere.

    Plus they would probably look cool, and it might be cheaper than making them out of canvas.

    That is very kind of you! I assumed that sheath makers used polymer knife replicas to make their sheaths with like gun holster makers use to make holsters with.

    Would've been hilarious if the diving board operator was also on lifeguard duties in his speedos :eek:

    In fact please scratch that, an image which couldn't be unseen if/when true :D

    I tend to complain about our exorbitant insurance costs, but upon further reflection I realize it's probably about right

    Spart
    Sparta is beautiful. That was the 4th one in 24 hours, but the first 3 were small.
