    This is kind of a follow-up from my first leather carving thread. I finally decided to go for it. Many of you have already seen the knife but if you haven't it is my version of a Nessmuk that I made last year. Blade is D2 tool steel with cocobolo scales. Let me know what you think.

    I say the leafs are the worst choice. Sometimes I wonder why I'm a fan. They haven't won since a decade before I was even born. i don't know if it's because I'm faithful or because I like punipunishment. Lol

    Great work Icho, now there is some natural talent. I can't wait to see what's coming and I like surprises (unless it's a broken blade)...lol!!! ;)

    Thanks Steve. I am hoping to finish up a customized sheath for the knife in my profile pic. I may be posting it tomorrow. It is a bit simpler than this one.

    Very nice sheath and knife! Nice to see your practice maple leaf was the start of something bigger. Nessie certainly looks safe and secure in there. I love it when people decide to "go for it."

    Fiebing USMC black?

    Real nice job on the leather carving Icho, the maple leafs look great. Great Nessmuk also.

    Thanks guys. Dan. You guessed it. This is my first time trying fiebing's die. I don't think I will be using anything else anymore.

    Did you find the black rubs off for the first little while? I buffed with a clean rag until it stopped. Took quite a while, but the black is nice and black.

    Ya it's like a powdery residue. I do the same thing with the rag. Then when I put the sealer on I give it time to soak in. It seems to get the rest of the excess die off.
