    Received my Sheath from Mr Long today
    Grey Giraffe skin with Black Shark skin chevron
    Love it!
    Another thanks to @Richard338 for loaning out his dagger to make it happen

    Sorry for the crappy pic, the weather has taken a turn for the worse and probably wont see the sun for 4 months

    I really like this one (all of Paul’s work is awesome). I would want something similar if I’m able to score a CPK BD!

    Thank you! Sometimes less is more and Paul was happy to oblige.

    Yes, it's just a batch of 25. Will be on my web store soon hopefully.

    The K-18 project is alive and well in my mind's eye :) Until I have one in hand I can't actually apply brain to leather though.

    I don't have any ready yet but it will look very similar to the Dagger sheath but following the lines of the DEK1. Will post some teasers as they are being made.

    Chad, when you get a chance would you mind posting a photo of the Boot Dagger inside one of your newly crafted sheaths ?

    Sure thing :) Shown here with a couple of DCC clip options. These were mock-ups taken for the web page and will get a final rub down of Bick's before shipping.

    We're spoiled with great sheath options! Why not have both? I'll wear Paul's on Sundays...

    Finally got a chance to take a couple of pics of my new Paul Long sheath. The rattlesnake inlay is beautiful. This will be my BBQ sheath on Sundays. :thumbsup::)

    Damn! You sure can pick a stylish pattern.
    (not to mention Paul's execution as always)

    Paul, thanks so much, that's an incredible compliment coming from a legend as yourself. I'm hoping I can buy you a cup of coffee and we can spend a little more time talking at Blade this year :)


    I'm not sure it's appropriate to post a link here but I will head over to the "CPK Buy - Sell - Trade" thread and post it after this. They have been live since yesterday but I only sent the link to the people who had asked to be notified when they launched. I also wanted to test the new commerce page before making it too public. So far so good!
