I love your photos. Doesn't matter what knife it is, the settings and composition just seem first-rate every time.
You tell me something I didn't know about the leather sheaths. I didn't know they came in black. I'm hoping that my CF G3 comes with a black one. I'll know tomorrow. My natural leather one was just a bit snug, but I wet form all my leather sheaths in the beginning, anyway. By now, it's been used some much and coated with Neet's Foot Oil enough so that it's well-shaped and soft but still has a good snug belt loop and good retention for the knife. I've climbed up and down all over the warehouse wearing that G3 and it's never come out until I drew it out.
CRKT does do some nice looking stuff, don't they? I'd like to see some upgrades to their steel selection, but their designers and collaborators turn out some good looking knives. My wife has an old M-16 that she uses downstairs in her art studio and I have a ray-wrapped First Strike that was a gift from a buddy on BF back in my early days on the board.
Much thanks for the compliment, Dale - I really appreciate the kind words. And as for the sheaths, I think they include the black sheaths with black coated blades, and the natural sheaths with the stonewashed blades. At least, that's how mine came. Can't imagine they wouldn't either let you swap them out or purchase an additional sheath. Worth asking...
Here's another couple looks at the Obake from today - you can see on the flip side (on the tang, right up next to the wrap) that it's serialized. Each one of these is acid etched by hand, so each one is unique. That's a little extra kinda cool, IMHO:
