    @Warrior108 @Hulk2e :

    The new Baron is wider and shallower...

    IMG_6868.jpg
    (New iteration on the left; I thought I'd been sent the incorrect sheath, was shocked when I found out it was, indeed, a Baron, and swapped it out right quick for one of the last Real® ones in stock....)

    An Esquire in the original Baron was one of my favorite looks/proportional carries. Dang.

    There's no way I needed (even more) extra leather overwhelming the FF patterns' lines and blocking my pockets-- if I could even fit the sheaths in 'em anymore!

    I've gone to another source, with delectably strong clips so the sheaths stay anchored in-pocket when I draw my knife, but I'm sure glad I have my original Barons.

    That Surls kestrel with Evergreen burlap ticks all the boxes for me. My wallet is glad I missed that one because I couldn’t resist it if it was still available.

    Very well said, as usual, @pertinux.

    I’m also glad I have an older Baron, for this exact reason.

    @Duba you sure that first bushboot pic has orange liners? Looks like white to me.

    @Choppaman I think you might be right about the curly oak.

    The date on that Bourbon Street Skinner is pretty accurate. I think that one or my Osage handled one were used for the sheath prototype. That sheath shown is hand sewn and I have been using a machine for the last 6yrs. Very nice and gorgeous oak handle! Would look pretty cool next to the Osage.

    It's a beautiful sheath, Rick! If you are settled in Florida I'd like to get in touch about some other projects. Thanks for the info.
