    This JouFuu ESEE3 ISP carries the FK2 real nice in the pocket.

    got two more sheaths under my belt, (lol) today. Had to learn a couple new things in order to nail this commission I'm working on, and what better way than to make myself some sheaths? Will try to post up some pictures tomorrow

    Got a new cross draw for the EDC(123) from Bud. It goes great with the DEK1 ISP. The DEK1 in the pocket and the EDC in the cross draw position. Both made of tough 10 - 11 oz harness leather. These should last a lifetime.:thumbsup::) @bonafide

    Very nice work. Congrats. I like the green one a lot. But what’s the top hole for? Thank you.

    thanks!

    the hole is for mounting and iwb keeper strap primarily, although I have in mind a couple modular components that could be mounted for carrying it other ways.

    the position of that hole and the overall shape of the sheath will be different when I build a run of these sheaths, this one's a prototype and I was in a bit of a rush to build it so I could figure out how to incorporate a deerskin lining on a commission I'm currently working on.

    to me, the most important aspect of a sheath is how it works..Looks come second, (in my case, by a long shot!)
    I'm happy with how this sheath works, and the fundamentals are there. So, I think I'll move on to the next step and further develop a nicer looking sheath for DEK1, which I'll make a small batch of

    I took the gnarliest, shittiest piece of leather I had that I figured was about the right size, and made a standard belt carry adapter for the sheath I put together a couple weeks ago (?I think?is time real?). It turned out better than expected
