When you find a "DEAL" .. here's a place to post it.
Cutlery & cutlery related items.
Such that other members might also take advantage of the DEAL
.... IF ...
they've an interest in such.
I'll start the discussion with an item I came across late last week.
I recently acquired an S&M Premier #043081 Humpback Lockback Whittler.
It immediately went into my EDC rotation. In fact .. it's been in my pocket every day since it arrived on Thur 01 Sept of this year. It's a nice knife & pocket carry comes with some company. While not much for me .. most will have the occasional change ..coinage.. perhaps, a key or two .. other objects that WILL negatively impact the fine fit-n-finish of a new knife. As such .. I went shopping for a knife slip ..or.. purse.
I currently have 2 units I actively use.
An A.G. Russel small leather knife pouch ..Item #: POU-33412L
A Max Capdebarthes leather sheath model 8813.
Both are very fine knife slips.
In the search for a knife slip to house the Schatt & Morgan Whittler .. I came across this deal.
It's listed as "Leather Knife Sheath for Opinel #7 & #8 ... SKU = Knife-Sheath.
It's USA made .. right here in MO. It's real natural leather. no laminated partially man made product passing itself off as a leather product.
The unit is 5" in length ..and.. 1 & 7/8" in width (1 & 19/32" between the stitching). The leather is a measured 0.068" thick. It is symmetric in design.
They are $2.oo a piece. Yup, 2 bucks a pop.
I ordered 4 of them.
They are all the same .. the blanks are probably die stamped. The edges are uniform. The stitching is even & uniform. The only downside .. if there is one .. is the color. It’s a LIGHT undyed tan.
I will apply a few liberal coatings of Renaissance Wax to one.
Perhaps .. shoe polish to another.
Will soak one in olive oil.
Not sure about the last one .. may leave "as is".
a quality all natural leather knife slip
for $2.oo + shipping
is " A Deal "

Harbor Freight's 20% off "super coupon" is great. My local HF returns the "super coupon" back to the customer until it's out of date. SO0oo .. it's like a "forever" super coupon. i.e. they always issue newer ones before the old one expires anyway.
Get them online and they're always on my phone.
