    Agreed. I like the whole package. It has a comfortable looking shape to the handle, too.

    good question JS, I cut them out of a block I had and eye-balled the rest of the way , I'd say approx 3/16''

    I figured that they were fairly thin. I don't know why but I always order 3/8" scales and end up grinding a crap load of it off when I shape the handles lol. The next order I make is going to have some thinner scales in it.

    That sheath is amazing Rob. Normally I would say copper rivets just because I like copper, but this one is so clean I think I would leave them out. Just a question, what is the insert material? And if leather how did you get that texture, it looks awesome. If its a proprietary top secret process I will understand haha

    That sheath is awesome Rob! Did you do an inlay or is that stamped in?

    Brandon no secrets here bud , I'll share anything anytime with anyone (well almost anyone) hahahaha !!
    .........3 layers of 8-9oz leather and 2 short welts (about 3'' tapered) to keep the knife really snug and enough to keep the blade away from the waxed thread
    2nd layered is stamping I did , 3rd layer is skeletonized leather, but thinner than the other 2, gives it a great inlay effect and keep the lines really sharp at the same time.
    I will have to look up the Tandy stamp number for you, don't know off the top of my head the number.........
    been playing around with mixing leather dyes as well.......really happy with this one and the way it went on........thanks for the compliments gents
