These are a group buy for the guys on a private forum we set up some time back so a special price for them. PM (or vongruff@gmail) me if you have a particular knife need.

Have these all with the first coat of sealer (thinned spar varnish) on them this morning so that will get sanded back to wood tomorrow and be repeated another twice before the oil finish is started so should be able to get to the sheaths and send them of in about 3 weeks. Unfortunately one of them has had to be rejected due to a flaw emerging during the last sanding stage and I can not send anything that is not up to standard.

Have had a couple of day on the leatherwork. After the knifework, the thread groove,makers mark and stamping was done before the top part of the belt loop was glued and sewn on. The welt was then glued in and the belt loop folded over and glued in position ready for sewing tomorrow. Then they can be folded and glued in thier final position before the thread holes are drilled and the main sewing starts.

Sheaths all ready for sewing now with 7 different sizes for standard right handed carry,  a  lefty and a horiznotal carry. There is another horizontal carry cut out but the guy it is for wants a darker sheath to will get the die in a day or two.



There is seven that have been stitched so getting through them slowly.

I had bought russet leather and have used a tan dye which will darken a little when they get waxed.

I was asked on another forum how I do the stitching holes and sew up the sheaths so did a couple of short videos.

Nice, I do similar but don't use the stitching pony and don't drill the holes. Reason I don't drill the holes is if you just punch holes with a needle the leather over time will have opportunity to clamp back around stitch for a bit extra strength, if drilled it is less likely to be able too. But the rest is similar but just maybe in a different order. Nice work though
