A few of my past knives by way of introduction

Post by OldOak » Sat Sep 19, 2020 11:14 am

Hi, just joined so thought I'd post a few pictures of my past knives. Mostly fixed blades here although I've recently started making folders.
All the best

Your workmanship strikes me as very impressive. May I know how long you have been doing this splendid work?

Hi, thank you I always thought the leatherwork part was my weakest. Some of my latest sheaths use kydex in the belt loop to stiffen it while it remains fairly narrow. The leather is stitched through the kydex liner which sits inside it. The part of the sheath with the blade in is standard leather, but kept as slim as possible. I like the belt loop to be hidden as much as possible by the handle of the knife nowadays.

Kind of like this...
