    Here is the first one to come off the bench. Brown sheath, 8-10 ounce leather, firesteel loop, removable dangler, Chicago Screw. I have started skiving the welt toward the bottom in order to get a better fit. The color turned out really well.

    I like the dangler ring. Does it screw apart to allow for removal?

    Quality job all-around!

    It does - you can follow the link in my sig to get one - or more. You can add them to existing sheaths.



    Also - that blade IS wicked - Dan send a perfect 0 ground blade and it took me only minutes to sharpen it to what you see.

    Can't wait to receive it - TF's adding a lanyard tube. I have an Arizona ironwood-handled Koster bushcraft knife and a matching ironwood firesteel waiting for their new pants. Again, great job and thanks!
    Cheers,
