    Hi Everybody,

    One of my great friends and very good customers wanted a Rambo/military themed sheath.

    Since I have had great success with the leather covered kydex and the bonding agents I am using I thought to use some old military canvas to cover the sheath with and then do a stencil artwork on it. (still working out the stencils) so here is the proof of concept and proto version.

    He thinks its great and so do I :)

    There is an added bonus, if any of you have been in the military or BSA years ago, there is a certain smell that goes with this old canvas that will be immediately recognizable ;) I am working on "manly air fresheners" for the Christmas season ;)

    Keep your eyes out for more versions of the Canvas Mutants

    If I had 8 thumbs, I would be putting them all up in the air - this is one of the coolest things on the "cool continuum of kydex evolution" I have ever seen - I really love it.

    Another winner from Mr. Brown... I've seen this in person -- which is why I'm getting one as well; absolutely fantastic fit and finish!

    That smell makes me think of my Grandfathers old Ontario P4 collection and watching Donald Sutherland as Oddball. Strange how the mind works.

    Looks great!
    You might also be able to do the same with the camo rip stop fabric from some old BDUs.

    That does look awesome. I am going to hit you up for a leather and kydex mutant sheath for my maroon Forsaken Gemini though.

    Having grown up in the surplus business and owning a chain of them in the past, I can't help put love this.
    Contact me if you ever need help finding more canvas.
    This made today so much better!
    Thank you for your inspirational work.

    Thank you :)

    Thank you Brother :0

    Thank you

    Look forward to it my brother

    It sure is some smells bring things right back.

    Thank you

    It may work but the adhesive may bleed through, I think I have some of my old BDU's I will give it a try.

    Thank you

    Thank you

    That stuff may be too stiff it has to be really flexable, I also have some wood grain print kydex available.

    Thank you

    Thank you

    Sounds good and thank you

    Thank you

    Thank you Sheath makin Brudda

    I may hit you up, my supplier is kind of pricey and it is looking like I may need quite a bit of this, especially for the "air fresheners"
    please e-mail me if you get a chance.
    But it has to be the stinky canvas :)
