    David Brown knocked out all these sheaths and could not have done a better job. Hit him up if you need ANY kydex work!!! (http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/member.php/115827-David-Brown)

    Ryan, Incredible craftsmanship sir! You have have labored to craft a fine set here and chosen such a historicaly multi functional blade design with the Khukuri. I am sorry to have missed out on the first ten. If it is not much trouble could you ad me to that email notification list? I would greatly appreciate it. I am adding myself to your listing for when you open up your order book again. I would like you to make a Karambit for me. Thanks Ryan.

    Apologies for resurrecting an old thread, but these are awesome looking blades.

    How do you dull the blade and add the pattern?
