    Still need to tweak a couple of areas on the design, widen the slots a little, and flare the top of the leading edge.

    The lovely Mrs. Lessismore agreed to Model the carry methods.

    Vertical has a slight forward cant.

    I like this crossdraw angle as opposed to a horizontal carry.

    I really like it. I'm making a few changes on the templates and creating some more width for the belt. I'll be cutting another one out here shortly.

    Perfect timing! I played with some today, straight it's the most hideous purple vomit you can imagine. I found if you mix it one part Oxblood to 46,392 parts brown, you may least don't throw up!:D

    John, that looks great! :cool: :thumbsup: FWIW, I think I would prefer the sheath as-is, without a flare.

    Thanks Jared, the flare would just ease up some stress on the welt, shouldn't be a visible change:thumbsup:

    Proper crossdraw technique.

    The second sheath is stitched up, looks like it's going to work out well.
