    I can't tell if they look like coffins or shoes:)

    Fantastic colours in it. This knife is my best buddy. Sleeps in my bed. All the other knives hate this one:)

    Gus that looks excellent! Is it lined with suede? @fkctrjt121 are you taking on any other projects?

    In an effort of supporting our fine CPK denizen leather craftsmen first and foremost, I am in with at least 3 more sheaths from Frazer plus another matching beauty from @duramax. If you are not in a terrible rush and can wait the slightly longer period which it takes our hobbyist and at times part-time leather sheath makers to complete orders, give 'em both a try :)

    Hey Martin, sorry for the delayed reply, I was sleeping( night shift). Frazer said it was lined with nappa. Looks great with Osage. :thumbsup::)

    I'm glad you like it. The osage looks great with it!
    This one is lined with Nappa. It also has a foam cushioned mouth.
    I'm full time making leather/canvas stuff, sheaths I make in my spare time. If you want to get in touch I'd be happy to make something for you

    Sure does, makes a nice addition with that Osage, may I ask, did Frazier have the pattern or did you have to send him your copy?

    this is the first FK sheath finished of the massive 5 sheath run I'm very close to completing. A couple of you guys expressed an interest in getting yourself one of these, would you remind me please through a pm?

    What do you think of the dye? I was only going to do this one, and leave the others with that nice caramel brown waxed finish.

    "Massive" 5 sheath run???o_O Speed up little buddy. ;) That last endeavor here turned into about 55 sheaths:D

    On a more serious note, your work is looking better and BETTER. :thumbsup: Please consider losing those butt ugly copper rivets

    and just back stitch instead. Just as strong for practical purposes and a lot better looking.

    Paul, I'm glad you made it out the other side of that order! I've got a couple pieces in the works that I plan to contact you about...

    thank you, Paul! It means a lot to me that you are seeing improvement- I feel like I'm improving, but it sure feels awesome to hear that from a pro like you :)

    I'm not sure why I like the copper rivets so much. Taking your advice will definitely save me time and money, and make for a slightly sleeker sheath, but I seriously can't help myself
