Here's the sheath for my small Sebenza that I picked up from Gary Graley at the BLADE show. Typical G2 quality and workmanship. Just beautiful.

Nice. It is so neat to have the horizontal carry option w/o using a kydex product. I like kydex, but not for everything.
 
Thanks Kelly! Just happened to have one of those on hand at the show

And William got my hat for me! When he left on Monday, the front desk asked him to give it back to whom ever it belongs, I might have dropped it down in the breakfast area? Not sure.

Nice pic...

Kelly, how could anyone not take pride in wearing that sheath? Not everything is black and white, as I am sure we both know. I can see that we at least agree that Gary is a first class guy who does great work.

I showed Gary's latest creation to a sheath maker on the island. He was very impressed and said he has never seen sheath welts so smooth before. Gary's side welts feel as smooth as fiberglass.

Another point is communication and packaging. Gary lets you know everything he is doing and bends over backwards to help. His packaging of your knife back to you is darn good, too. He sends them back to me better than I send them to him.

Without a doubt, Gary is a first class craftsman. Leatherwork, handle wraps, and makes a mean tanto! Far too modest also. I keep telling him that if he's not careful he'll end up being a full time sheath maker, if not knife maker. I've even gotten the leather bug from him and he's given me many good pointers. Kodiak PA is right about the edges too....smooooooth. How's that WH folder G2?

Check out his home page. BTW I won't say what his prices are, but I've seen lesser sheaths go for much more money.
 
Paul,
That William Henry is doing <font color=#FF0000>Just Fine!</font>

I miss spoke the other day calling it the Pearl series, it's the Rainbow series, spearpoint with a Firey Opal, Sterling Silver bolster work, Ivory micarta, deep ocean blue titanium liners, oh my head is spinning! I really like this knife! But best of all my wife thinks it's nice as well, which made bringing it home all the easier!

Glad to see that a lot of people appreciate the sheaths that I create, and the Indian head is one that I feel is very appealing to almost all who see it.

Thanks again guys,
G2
 
Gary - I have a ?? What do you recommend for maintaining and protecting the finish on your sheaths? A little mink oil every so often. or what?

Senator, the outside is a waterproof type coating, on the inside I usually use Neatsfoot oil, and some times a Mink oil paste. Use the oil especially on the flaps so as to keep them in good working order!

Gary, That is really some nice work. We have come to expect nothing but excellence in the work that you do. Keep up the good work.
