    No, but they shut everything down for a week before they all left to go down and dings and all started just before that. I just figure that had a little to do with some of the delays in them going out.

    I haven’t even been dinged for for my Nuke but I’m not in a rush

    Amazing blade!!! Compared with AK47, Battle Mistress, Park Ranger, and Mini Mean Street. It is perfect.

    Hilarious that's worth quoting right there LOLOLO!!!

    With as many regular ones yet to be delivered I see the nukes bringing up the caboose for the grand finally.... no matter how long it is, it won't be as long as the HOGB8, not even close so just a short sweat~ but yeah man, they all looks so freaking awesome I get happier and happier I jumped on one.

    Apparently cricketdave has the sheath thing figured out. Trouble is, he’s just doing them for himself.

    If I could find a good source for heavy leather, I do believe I’d take to doing my own. Even though we’ve got some fabulous leather workers here in the forums, I think I’d like it as a hobby.

    How heavy a leather are you talking? o_O

    I haven't owned many double sided blades and those sheaths where kydex, wasn't sure if a leather with either a kydex insert or maybe only kydex in problem points (where tip of sheath is and on either side where you insert) to avoid cutting the leather a bit at a time every time you draw and re-sheath. I'm sure you can reduce the wear very much with a careful draw and insert but only so much.

    Looking forward to the elegant solutions the sheath makers come up with! :D:D:D

    Tandy has decent leather sometimes. I'm thinking about doing a loveless style sheath for mine. I didn't make this sheath just using it as an example. It's my knife though. [​IMG]

    I get to go by the post office today to hopefully pick up my loaner!!!

    Cant wait to handle this beast and get it into my shop! I feel like that evil scientist giggling over his project!!!!!

    I do a variation on a lined sheath, a flat slab of kydex sandwiched inside the sheath, no plastic touches the blade. I'm not sure if this knife will require such methods yet, but it just might. :D

    I usually buy my leather at tandy, it helps thought to be close enough to actually pick what i want in person. As for the double edge a thick welt takes pretty good care of that. Its not like daggers haven't been made for centuries. I've planned to do a kydex sheath too when I get around to it.
