    Hey guys, after seeing the pics Rick Lowe posted up of his Fiddleback sheaths, I knew I had to get one for my Bourbon Street Skinner. The lines of his sheath just look to really compliment the sexy curves of this knife. After a few very quick and pleasant emails with Rick, I had one of his pieces on its way to me. it got here saturday and I am definately very pleased with his work. The fit and finish is great and the sheath is very light and well balanced while on the belt. Just wanted to share some first hand experience with a great product. On the the pics, enjoy






    A quick shot of it on


    Decided to harvest a few wild sweet potatoes ( well, I planted them and let the grow wild)

    Jroden5446 that is really a great report of the knife and sheath and some fantastic pictures to boot! You have a really sweet package there. I like the look of the two-tone colors on the sheath and I agree that it complements the knife very well. Thank you for sharing.

    Thanks man, I did a little more detailed write up of the BSS when I first got it. I agree, the two tone of the sheath is great, and the medium brown really makes the Osage in the handle pop, I love the lines of the sheath as well, really does compliment the BOurbon streets curves

    Oh this thread is dangerous! I've been trying to resist the Bourbon St Skinner for months and I'm caving! This sheath will seal the deal. Gotta sell some stuff first...

    Thanks for sharing such a sweet rig!

    Congrats ( if you get it ) the swedges on those look amazing! I'd ask Andy if he has any of Ricks sheaths in when you set up payment, if not, just email Rick direct

    Glad to be of service!:D You won't regret a BBS ( or a sheath from Rick)

    Andy will have three of the sheaths in his hands Friday afternoon. Two are the lighter color and one is brown. If anybody wants to order direct, email me at, [email protected] and we can go over color choice and any other options. These sheaths will be $50 plus $5 Priority Mail shipping through Andy or direct from me. I can usually ship finished sheath within 24hrs. of order. Thanks to all for the good comments!

    Well Brother, you got past the first part............now start taking names!
    See you in a couple of days.

    My airline pilot student is coming over today to learn a little leather (one that burned his britches on my anvil). Going to show him some of these pics to inspire him.
