    So you are saying that sewing up a sheath in a few minutes , is more fun than taking 1 or 2 hours to sew it up by hand?:) Next I suppose you will be telling us that you don't miss the sore fingers from pulling the stitches tight when sewing by hand?:D

    O.B.

    That look much better with the strap trimmed parallel to the edge of the sheath!

    Sanded the guard down on my 124. I wanted a slip sheath but the factory guard is on the large side and makes it a bit tougher. This leather is heavily oiled and lightens up when stressed.

    factory production sheaths should be ambidextrous IMHO. Really no reason not to be.

    I know this is about the sheaths but I wouldn't mind seeing a better profile of that guard. I've had a strong desire to pull the top guard off of my 5160 119 I bought from you a year or two ago. Make it a little easier to put a thumb on the spine for my more regular uses.

    It is sheath related. I ground the guard down so i could swing by bum thumb on top of the blade plus makes using a slip sheath much easier. I picked up a houser Barrel nut 119 that he had ground the guard down on. Then bought a spin on Pommel 119 with the guard done the same way. 15702881935414225036190475502693.jpg 1570288224539349815302975226179.jpg 15702883079871328635973852797156.jpg 20191005_080201.jpg 20191005_080148.jpg 20191005_080317.jpg 20191005_080234.jpg 20191005_080214.jpg
