    Beautiful,David! SO, IS it actually same'? or is it a same' lookalike, like some of your other leather lookalikes? Or a hybrid? If it is Kydex with that look, well, I am IN! And if it is actually same', then will it be a regular offering and is it a hybrid - cover on Kydex? Deets, please!

    100% real ray skin and man is it expensive.
    Oh and kind of a pain to work with, those little bumps are like sea shells or rocks to grind and drill trough. The skin actually throws sparks when I ground the edges !!! and it stinks like burning fish.

    As long as I can get it, I will offer it.
    Just the skin for this sheath cost me about 60.00 to 70.00
    I shudder to think what a sword size one would run, probably about 200.00 +

    It does look nice though.

    I plan on buying more skins. :)
