Thanks Guys. I'll tell you Tom. (Thanks for the tips...I was already using some of them before you sent them to me ;-) )

That last sheath (completed) that you saw. Was my first time trying anything with stamping. And as with any "first" attempt there's bound to be some experimentation and therefore some degree of failure. I wasn't completely happy with that one, just happy enough for a first attempt. I've finished two more since then and they turned out MUCH better. I'll have to see if I can get some pictures of those later.

Yes, well said Tom! Those are some fancy pants!

Comment by Tom Peterson on October 11, 2014 at 9:58

Alexander,

That sheath looks REALLY good! I think that you've been sandbagging us with some of your previous sheaths! Nice work sir!!!
