    The length regulation sure threw a kink into things didn't it!

    Great job man, I know what you mean about making it feel right vs appearance.

    Looks awesome myth. That one has enough Scandi in it to make up for us flat grinders haha. Material choice for that handle looks excellent.

    Thanks for the kind words. I hope whoever ends up with it gets some good use out of it.

    Nothing like a little 11th hour pressure to keep the heart going....

    I didn't think I'd make it, but I finally got a sheath made. It's not pretty and served as a good reminder of why I don't try to sew my own buttons back on. But it is a sheath, and more surprising (to me) the knife fits in it without either falling out or getting stuck.

    So with this I can now say that my contribution to the first Canadian Knifemaker KITH is complete.

    It's been a great experience. I'd do it again. :der:

    Thanks. Of course I show the better side in the photos. Whoever gets it will see the rest. Still, I will admit I'm pretty happy with it as my first ever sheath.

    The colour worked out well. It's called Java Brown. I used a small brush to paint on a couple of coats rather than dipping.

    Happy to say i received this little beauty in the mail and can tell you for someone who says he doesn't make fixed blade knives or sheaths makes some of my work look second rate!!Fits the hand perfectly and as the rest of you know the first thing i always do when i hold a new knife is look for something to cut-unfortunatly all i could think of at the time was to shave a little hair of my arm to see how sharp she was---now have a big bald itchy spot on my arm---wow thats sharp.thanx for an awesome knife and sheath tim-will appreciate her and she has a good home.

    I'm glad (and relieved) that you like it. Even though it caused me a fair amount of stress in its making, I found it really hard to let it go.
