    Thanks Phil! You have an amazing assembly of knives, proud to help out with them :D

    As Mama Cass once sang.. "Someday Someday...''

    I keep thinking I am getting close then my tannery runs out of leather (among the top 5 things I never thought I'd say) or Mother Nature dumps 6" of granulated snow cone ice, (something I have never seen before) and my daughter misses a week of school.. Really though, I am getting close :D

    I was thinking about this today @jus_gus is a true aficionado of leather sheaths. I think some of his knives have more sheaths than my feet have shoes. On behalf of all leather crafters, thanks!

    Thank you my friend :) I appreciate it. Only took like 4 or 5 protos to get there lol. @TRfromMT did testing on two of the protos. He helped push some design features that went into the sheath.

    now dont blame @woodysone for that horrible sketch job lol. That was all me in an attempt to give illustration for the washers lol. I included those with the sheaths.
