    Awsome, I've been eyeing your work and I've got a few blades that could use some new pants. I assume you're going to make a thread with options and approx prices?

    I had my ninja suit on. :cool:

    Thanks for the welcome everybody. I'm gonna get a price and options list up Tomorrow (which I still haven't done on my site :eek:).

    My prices will be going up as I switch to a new model. Options will be increasing though to include more colors as well as two-tone (or more) kydex and more options on airbrushed sheaths (I broke down and bought a stencil cutter :D).

    Do you have a template for this or would I need to send it in?

    Could you do something with the skull pattern on it (like in your photos) and something that is super small profile with no clips or anthing (want to just shove it into a pocket.)

    I'll try to include everything, but feel free to ask questions.


    Options
    ---------------
    All sheaths use .093 kydex unless noted otherwise

    Solid Colors:

    -Black
    -Blue
    -Brown
    -Gray
    -Orange
    -Red
    -Silver
    -Tan
    -White


    Airbrushed Sheaths:

    I'm trying to switch over to dye, but haven't worked out the kinks yet. All graphic stuff is on hold till then. Whenever that may be.


    Carry Options:
    (I don't do integrated loops. They suck.)

    -Removable Kydex belt loop
    -Tek-Lok (large or small)
    -Clip style loop
    -IWB loop in rubber or leather
    -Neck
    -Dual webbing loops that can be adjusted for belt width, looped to drop the sheath or switched to IWB carry in seconds.

    (If you have another carry method in mind, let me know and we'll get it done.)


    Other options:

    Firesteel loops
    Piggyback
    Misc. gadget attachment

    My brain's foggy right now, I'll add more later.

    While still being pretty dang cheap, my previous customers will notice a little price increase. I'm switching to a new model that will give buyers a lot more options and free me from having to stock a million different things. This comes at an increase in material cost, but I think it will be better for everyone.

    Prices are approximate and may end up being cheaper than listed, contact me for an exact price. Recurves, skinners, and other funky stuff may increase the price.

    Any blade over 9", contact me for pricing.

    If something is not in stock from my supplier, I will see if I can obtain it elsewhere and let you know of any price changes.

    Sheath - Any solid color

    1"-5" blade - $25
    5"-9" blade - $30



    Carry Options:

    Kydex loop - $3
    Small Tek-Lok - $10
    Large Tek-Lok - (N/A)
    Clip style loop - (N/A)
    IWB Snap Loop - $5
    Dual Webbing Loops - $6
    Neck Chain - $2



    Other Options:

    FS loop - $3

    Other options, contact me.

    Any questions, just ask. :)

    It's late, so I'll post a few for now and add more later. Feel free to add your own.

    Do I need to send my knife to you?


    Most likely. I don't keep very many sheath making specific knives around. I keep most Moras in stock just for sheaths, but my other blades are users and keeping extras for sheaths would increase my prices to make up the cost.


    What's your turnaround time?

    1-4 weeks after knife is received depending on options, stock, and how busy I am at the time.


    What payment methods do you take?

    Money order or PayPal.


    How do you ship and how much is shipping?

    I ship USPS Priority. Cost will depend on the size of the knife plus insurance to cover your blades.


    How cool are you?

    Very. :cool:
