    I received this Bushcrafter Sr today from Philllip (M4Super90) It's a stunner! I recently sold a non-Fiddleback but kept the sheath. I wanted a 4"+ blade and this Bushcrafter surprisingly was still available. It's a perfect fit for this sheath. It won't ever replace my Bushfinger set-up but this will definitely get some extensive use.

    Showing off the Blue Ladies hanging out under a shady oak in their Rick Lowe dragon scale leather. Couldn’t be happier with the matching sheath patterns, and @Rick Lowe is a great guy to deal with!

    New belt carry pattern for the Bushboot. The sheath wraps around the bolster area of the handle and snaps in place. Makes for a nice minimalist sheath and showcases the knife's awesome handle. This one is for a lefty if anyone is interested...

    Looks good! Could you please show the other side?

    (I Bushboot not, but am interested in seeing how the sheath ‘works’.)

    Sure thing. Here you go. I sewed a loop onto the other side for a belt. Please excuse my sloppy backside stitching. Doing this all by hand I'm going to add a stitching groove on the backside as well to ensure a straight line, especially on the curved sheaths. That's the kind of stuff that drives me nuts, but is at least I know what to do to not repeat it. It's fairly easy to stay consistent on the presentation (front) side, but the back can get a little tricky with a leather awl. On a side note, I picked up a GEC 46 yesterday. Finally got my Whaler!

    Looks like it would ride pretty high, based on where the belt loop is located. I like the idea of this sheath, though. The tooling on the leather is great!

    A big shout out to my good friend Justen @Southern Gent for making a couple of Hiking Buddy sheaths for me in the midst of his busy schedule! It started out as one, but he's been toying around with a couple of new patterns, so he went all out.
    Thanks Justen!

    Sorry for the poor lighting! This was a quick pic.

    Tooling on that brown one is sexy! Would love a flat back pocket sheath for a runt w/ that center tooling on it.
