    I like them all, but that Marchand sword-cleaver-beast is plain awesome.

    Had some extra time and material left so I decided to add-on to the sheath, it just looked kind of plain w/ only Kydex. I added two leather retention straps for good measure, and a leather-backed Kydex pouch. The pouch is removable, and there is about 20-30 feet of 550 chord holding it on the sheath. I was hoping the opening would be large enough for a multi-tool and some other stuff, but it just did not work out that way. But it still can hold a decent sized folding knife (Spyderco Endura), and a fire-steel w/ striker, so it's all good.

    That is an excellent idea Dave. Very creative. Love the way you used the leather for the flap!

    The Marchand makes me want to harvest oversized vegetables from a troll's garden. (do troll's have gardens?)

    Don't most trolls live under a bridge or in a cave? If so, then I don't think they'd have gardens.

    As for this contest, I can't wait until the action starts. I want to see what some of these knives can handle.

    Well I figured I would tweak mine just a tad and ended up screwing it up. I've got another piece of W2 on the way but doubt I will be able to finish it in time. I guess I'm out.

    I am completely finished! Here it is:



    I searched locally for a Kydex maker for a week to make a sheath for this knife. When I couldn't find one, I took the bull by the horns and got my own press. This is my fourth sheath I have made which I think turned out really well. The retention is very solid and the digi Urban Camo goes with the theme of this challenge, I think.

    Sorry guys. I didn't know when this was actually going to happen. Needed the money. Sold the GroB in the For Sale forum today. I guess I am withdrawing from the challenge.

    Well, I was waiting for a few to get theirs finished but if you guys need the cash sell em'.

    Sorry I haven't set a definite date but I thought being flexible would be better.

    Here it is:



    Olive drab Kydex to match the handle wrap, two MOLLE locks, and plenty of eyelets to give options for attachment, cordage storage, and the addition of gear storage pouches.



    And a shot in hand looking at the false edge. Plenty of steel there to turn over and use as a hammer!



    I hope that I haven't been the holdup. Moving shop and getting back functional has been more of a booger and time-waster than I had anticipated. Sure am looking forward to seeing what my blade will do. Sorry about the fellows who are having to drop out; I sure would have loved to have seen y'all's in action as well.
