    I was making some sheaths last week and I cut one out left handed instead of right handed by accident. I don't have any pictures of it yet and I don't really want to sell this one, so I figured Id give it away on the forum! It fits a Rule #9 perfectly but will not fit a twig mangler due to the thicker handle; I'm not sure what else it would fit since those are the only two larger JKs I have right now. Its a simple pouch style sheath made from 7-9 ounce veg tan leather that I hand pick at Tandy through there stack of shoulders. The belt loop should fit up to a 1 1/2 inch belt but I can double check tonight after work and post some pictures of the finished sheath. Not for sure yet how I would do the giveaway and i'm not for sure how many lefties we have here, but I figured some one might want it and its better than sitting on my work bench not getting any love.

    Found some photos on my phone of the sheath. This was taken before the Tan Kote was applied the only problem with the sheath is where I had a slight can't to my stitching chisels and the 3stiches at the first corner got out of line. I'll post pictures of the finished sheath tonight.

    Should also fit a Kephart, Canadian Belt Knife, standard Mud Turtle, and Personal Camp.
    Very generous of you!

    Awesome I was hoping you could give some insight to what it could possibly fit, and figured I could give something to this great community. Ill post the finished pictures once I'm off work since the Tan Kote changed the color a decent amount and get some measurements up.

    So here is the actual finished sheath the color is saddle tan and the belt loop can accept up to a 2" plus belt. I'll probably just make a new thread or edit this one to start the giveaway. I'll even make a dangler if the winner wants one with a removable D ring since I'll be ordering a couple this week.

    Please, please give it to this man so he can stop complaining :confused: :D

    I'd say you "whole ass" that one thing and made a real beauty that someone will be happy to own. You could easily sell it. Very nice of you to offer it in a GAW. :cool:
