    That is looking really nice. Exactly what I had hoped to see.

    I'm anxious to see the denim polished up, think it will be nice!

    Acronyms....never had too many in the Army!:mad::rolleyes: best one was BOHICA, though I doubt it was limited to the military.

    EDC is like nails on the chalkboard to me for some reason. There was an acronym thread here that would make your head spin!

    This blue denim is gonna finish out nice.

    Could you give mine some vitamins or a Power Bar? Maybe some sun. It looks pale and malnourished next to #2 and #3. :p

    This whole build series has been quite informative. (that's my way of saying it's cool...) :cool:

    Lookin' lovely...
    Cool to see the progression :thumbsup:
    That profile really is a neat design.
    The sheaths are something I'm getting excited about, too. Is it too early to talk about those? Color ??

    Never too early. What's on your mind?

    As far as construction I'm thinking about the kind that has a loop that alows ambidextrous horizontal carry, or an X back that let's you ride vertical or horizontal.

    If I remember right @Rupestris gave the ok for something different with the sheath. I'm gonna experiment with some texturing (using a concrete paver).

    None of that probably makes any sense but it's clear as mud in my messy head!

    Yep. Have at it. Something that resembles the thumpling would be cool. As would the X back:thumbsup:.

    Please, please say oxblood. :)

    The Rupe is, as usual, quite correct.

    Yeah, the X-back sounds versatile :thumbsup: Gets my vote.
    Texturing is cool too.
    Color is something I'm not sure on right now. Gonna have to see the finished knife first.
    Earlier you mentioned the Montana pitch blend, or something like that. That'll darken the leather handle some??? Got any examples on other knives??

    The pitch blend is just an oil conditioner, it will darken the leather but won't really color it.

    Brown with a little British tan dye gives a really warm tone. I like the edges dark towards and the center a bit lighter, it kind of gives it a worn look.
