Latest Knife and sheath

You make some really nice looking knives. This one no exception. Love the sheath. Amazes me the junk sheaths that come with some knives. Does the handle go all the way thru?

Latest Knife and sheath

Thanks Don. Amazes me the junk knives AND junk sheaths people will buy but thats another thread.
Yes the sheath comes up about 2/3 of the handle. The nice thing about a butterfly style sheath is you can get a true fit of the knife profile, i also build a cam lock inside on the welt, you can tuen the sheath upside down and shack it all day and the knife wont fall out but pull on handle with just thumb and forfinger and you can slide the knife out .
That sheath is my " free" comes with the knife sheath and typical of them though sometimes I dont throw in free border stamping. I do make them ALL fit as i described as well as use the higher quality leather and do the same edge burnishing and finish.
I do offer more elaborate sheaths but did the border stamping on this as a little gift for the customer as he and his wife just had a baby.
