Being around horses was how I first learned of it—used it on everything from saddles and bridles to my boots. Not the shiniest finish but keeps leather soft and supple, makes a good moisture barrier and is so easy to restore.:thumbsup:

So here's a riddle for you: "What's better than satin INFI and Res-C?" Simple:

Satin INFI, Res-C and fine leather!:D:thumbsup::cool:

Ha Ha, Made ya look!

Seriously, this is the second sheath I've received from from Adam and his work is top notch! I can't thank him enough for fitting me into to his busy build schedule. He hooked me up with a "one of" and I'm extremely satisfied with the outcome!:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

Will, you playin with people's minds - I was with you all the way and it's because of you I own this bad mother ......... and glad I listened to you- but now you messing with minds LOL! ~ That does look amazing :D :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

OK now I like it much better after seeing them SXS ~ You can see the long clip clearly - Absolutely awesome! That's an outstanding grind mod for sure! Love it!
Did you weigh them? Curious how much you knocked out, prolly not a lot but the looks are incredible. :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

Thanks Len—you’re right, only a little over an ounce removed but it’s a noticeable balance shift. More about where the weight was removed than the amount. Still packs a wallop—just a little livelier in hand.:thumbsup::cool:

(Not to mention stabbier :D)

Thanks bro!:thumbsup:

2” back from the tip it’s still 1/4” thick, so plenty strong. 1” from tip it’s .22”, so about the same thickness as a B8LE ricasso, but with the reinforcing geometry of a swedge—like two triangles with a common base. 3” from the tip it’s back up to beast mode—.27” thick. :eek::D
