    Made this tonight it should fit the E01 EDC on order for my fiancée. The belt loop is water buffalo and I like the way it looks just hate how it works. Chrome tanned stuff is just a lil to soft for my taste.

    Ok that’s what I thought it was. And I hear ya there is a whole lot of options just on thread alone, I’ve been super happy with the tiger thread though. It doesn’t tangle while stitching and lays nice and flat. The irons I want though are about 200 + for the crimson’s at 6spi I know I’ll like them more than my Cheap Tandy ones but I still haven’t pulled the trigger yet. That does come with a 6, 2, and 1 prong iron set though.

    Awesome work @darkmatter35!

    Keeping the hair you don't want the glue on is hardest. Otherwise it's fine, it soft so it needs to be laminated to a liner to give it some kind of form.

    Sheath I finished last night for @woodysone to go with his Rule #9 on order. Real happy with how this one came out!

    The hair on sheath is a good look, I have one as well from @Makael for the same knife (different colors) ;). Have a crossdraw as well that I plan to use on the EO1 hunter coming from @JK Knives in the next few weeks (starts making it next week).

    Thank you I think it makes a nice simple border stamp. Nice sling and vallet tray those are next on my list to make for myself! I have a 30-30 I wanna do a cartridge holder for as well as a sling.

    Just finished her up. Double stitched saddle tacs, double snaps and a removable dangler. I used natural snow Seal. Its dark right now but the brown will lighten up over time. Its ready to wet mold. 20190819_131618-1.jpg

    Was eying a machine era pen on flea bay. But someone bought it. That's about the high light of my day. Need to clean up the leather bench to. Also it's meet the teacher day. Summer is finally over.
