    I'm glad you like it. The 4 isnt the easiest blade shape. Drop in from the front works the best.

    I'm hitting the drawing board tomorrow night and correct a couple of things. The 4 is a blast to use and admire. I want to do it justice. I hope this blade comes around again.

    Ya know, guys. I don’t have the sheath yet, in fact the sheath that he’s going to send me hasn’t even been made since mike decided to “hit the drawing board” again.

    That said, by way of review, working with him is incredible. What a process and what an experience!

    When @Makael finishes BK4 sheath v2.0 and sends it to me, I'll post pics. If the one he posted in this thread has imperfections, I certainly can't see them!

    Great work there @Makael! I'd like some pants for a bk21 if you got one of those!

    I need to shorten the distance between the spine and the top of the sheath. There is movement now. This should secure the knife in the sheath with no movement whatsoever.

    I'll send you mine if you can make me a sheath for it! The factory sheath for the 21 is great for what it is, but I want something custom! Let me know, and I'll get it out to you!

    Hey Makael That looseness might not be such a bad thing. Mine was tight when I got It. But I found after chopping things that the sap and residue left on the blade would cause it to stick. When I would try to unsheath the 4 the whole sheath would come up on the dangler. I remedied it by putting a good coat of mink oil on it and shoving in a .250 Cam Machax for a few days. Wee bit loose now but draws like a dream.

    Very nice, truly a work of art. I would like to see the end result of both the 4 and the 21.
