    Today I received probably the nicest sheath I have made by Mike.
    I have a number of them, but this one is special. I swear it feels like a piece of leather furniture. IMG_20191230_111821769~3.jpg IMG_20191230_111921057.jpg IMG_20191230_111845681~2.jpg
    Mike, your work is amazing.

    Craig, Thank you!

    thank you. thats great leather on that one. Real soft so a lining is installed. Keeps the snaps from scratching and keeps the knife protected.

    Just got this one today. I asked Mike for a sheath to fit the 650 and 119 with top of guard ground down. Also wanted to try something different I wanted a clip instead of a belt loop. Due to symptoms of dunlap disease I don't like wearing a belt, not to mention having to change it to a fresh pair of jeans daily.
    I will post his pics as they are better than I can take and a couple of mine with the 119. and blue thread.

    That thing even looks soft in the pics lol. That turned out really nice. Not a big flap fan but I really like that.

    The contrast of the blue is very nice. Good choice. Personally I find Mike's leather belt loops more comfortable than metal or plastic clips. They dig into the new dad gut when I sit. :oops::oops::D:D

    Mike. Great job on your sheaths as always.

    This was a fun one to do. The blade shape was very graceful. 1577551088986146260269528055482.jpg 15775511370285304758825415397215.jpg 1577551210142983549078582468165.jpg 15775512392225092879745427728868.jpg 15775512807542721552821509140128.jpg

    Time to make this thread more current.
    Awhile ago Mike made me a sheath for a 914, but the guard was so big he had to make me another. My fault as he didn't have the knife, but he came thru and provided me one that worked.

    Well I got a new 914 with a smaller guard, a really cool handle and it fits the first sheath. Almost like he can see into the future.:)
    Thanks Mike!

    That would be cool.
    Go camping, hunt, fish, travel, and of course make leather items in your spare time......
    Eat more steak too.
    Yep.
    I might even take the time to grow my own salad.
    Always wanted to do that.
    I'd have to stop buying knives long enough to enjoy my new boat.
    Keep in mind I helped point this talent out........
    :D

    This was a fun sheath. The copper pin drops thru the face and sits in the choil area securing the knife in the sheath. IMG_20200120_141620_789.jpg IMG_20200120_141723_120.jpg IMG_20200120_141748_733.jpg 20200115_081200.jpg

    Impressive stuff.
    I like the contrast stitching. That pin retainer is cool. The tooling is nice.
    That last one is good lookin.
    It's neat to see your work evolve into the quality it is.

    Thank you. Its been a learning experience. At least im not tossing many sheaths these days. Mistakes on stitching in leather. By chance i have a mis stitch i will more than likely toss it. Unfortunately that part is towards the end of the project.

    The sheath I posted on #408, I put some leather conditioner on the untanned side of the leather and it made it look a bit better.
    I'm thinking it may help it look better longer.
    Mike can correct me if needed.
    Thanks

    Always condition the sheaths. It does help them look better and last longer.
