    Hey All,
    Just finished this up, been practicing on my machine and starting to get better with each one. The knife was made made by a friend of mine, he is a local maker and makes a great knife. On the sheath, I used a back scute from a locally harvested alligator that another friend got a few years ago. He gave me the hide to do as I will. It was tanned natural so its pretty hard to work with, as it has the outer armor still on the hide. I like how it came out, hope you all like it. Thanks for looking.
