    Thanks this one was one of my free hand designs. I made a wood template first so I might still make myself one haha

    :)I'm a big van of wood templates. Quick and easy to cut out. Great way to get an actual visual and feel of the design before you cut into the steel and if you end up liking the design you can hang it up for the future. If you don't like it, it is great for starting a fire.

    Yes the guy in my hometown has a good amount of dimondwood scales to choose from. Have some really nice ones for future use. And yes that tank has canola oil then the 15 gallon has transport oil in it. But use the ammo can fornthe knives

    That is cool amigo. I have got to ask you though. How did you get the belt loop on the kydex to turn out so good? Every time i try to do a built in loop it ends up a total mess. It's difficult to add in after the fact without messing up the sheath. Any tips/tricks?

    I just started doing templates. I don't have anything beyond paper yet. I was thinking about scanning the ones i liked into the pc. That way i could print one off, cut it out and glue it to the steel.

    I've done that also. The nice thing about the wood template is that if someone is looking for a knife, they can pick it up and feel it. Both ways work nice.

    Like icho said the wood ones are nice to play with to see what it's like first. Just use some thin ply wood scrap pcs to make them. And I have a jig I made after watching a video on it. I'll try to up upload it later. It is cut to the height off an average belt and there's a grove for the sheath to fit in and inheat it and form around it
