    Yeah, I think the trough gobblers are going to :poop: themselves when they grab hold of this one.

    Couple more pics-
    With the Mistress - This would look a lot cooler with a NukeFM I must admit

    Thanks for replying but that’s what I refer to as the “thickness” that Jerry lists in the specs. I guess I misdirected my question. Sorry bro.:eek:I meant the distance from the top of the spine down to the edge. (the height) Jerry used to include that measurement in the specs but doesn’t anymore. I think it was phrased “Blade WIDTH at widest point” So on the TR the widest point might be from the top of the swedge down to the lowest point in the belly of the blade edge.
    Jerry was asked the “height” (attachment)- and as I said, that’s another way of describing the width. This was for the Silent Knight.
    Thanks man I appreciate your help :thumbsup::D

    The widest point is at the end of the spine where the bowie clip starts, roughly 2.09

    Seems like this very inexpensive sheath will secure the TR, hold her tight until I can afford proper garb. Mybe some sexy leather this time for her curvaceous bod. Can’t wait for mine:confused:
    You been fondling your new squeeze?

    Why don’t they include weight in the specs? They’ve got the prototype.
    I’d like to see the width too. They used to include the “Blade Width” at the widest point, (a.k.a. the “height”) on the website. It would be helpful planning sheath accommodations :p:cool::thumbsup::eek::eek::eek:
