    Thanks :)

    Just double check hardware spacing. Also if you need / want the leather for behind the ulticlip let me know. I’ll make one up for you.

    I received this incredible Behemother sheath and Baldrig shoulder strap from William @duramax today and let me tell you I am just blown away! Its a work of art in a sort utilitarian kind of way. If anyone has had the privilege of working with Bill on a build, he is an extremely talented and dedicated sheathmaker who is even a better person. I've always wanted versatility when carrying a larger knife and this allows for belt carry , shoulder carry and has slots on the back for paracord or tacties if wanting to molle pack carry. Thanks again Bill!!!

    I’ve had the pleasure of Bills sheaths, all of them have been works of art with excellent retention, I kind of wonder what his scrap pile looks like to get this level of perfection?

    Thank you :)

    Sometimes I luck out and screw up early on lol. Those don’t hurt as much as the ones just about finished. From almost done to just all done now , happens fast lol

    I can finally contribute to this subforum! Thanks @cpirtle for the sheath - all my leather sheaths in the past had more-to-be-desired retention but this thing holds on nicely. I will have to be careful taking it out.

    Yep:mad:. Mine took 15 days to go from Springfield MA to Providence RI, which is less than 2 hours. Thought it would arrive today, but nope. But I can tell it will be worth the wait!:thumbsup:

    This (finally!) arrived in the mail after 10+ days bouncing around Florida.

    Anyway, this is a new sheath prototype from @duramax. It's lined with a thin layer of smooth leather and the retention is awesome around the blade. I have 2 layers of painter's tape around the front off the handle and will let it sit overnight to loosen up the mouth a bit. It will be in my boot tomorrow with a report to follow.

    Can’t go wrong with one of Bill’s sheaths, there are built for a couple of life times and they look good also!

    Just received this sheath in from Bill (Duramax). This came out just how I wanted it. Asked for a high rider with orange stiching(family color). Bill was an absolute pleasure to deal with and a complete gentleman. This is for the DEK1. Thanks Bill.
