Oh LOL that wasn't a knock on you. I actually don't remember seeing your sheaths but that is probably because I was scrolling to find your knives unsheathed.  ;D

2nd page on this thread are the newest pieces done. They are Hudson bay style knives.  What the mountian men, and free trappers used on thier travels out west in North America. Forge is closed down till spring. But i will be attempting new things, spear heads, kukri knife, more Hudson bay style, and a few different ones.

Interesting belt attachment method. that would just annoy me lol
Do you do sheaths with a more convention, point down, belt attachment ?

And yep good looking sheaths :thumb:

Thanks, i actually really like it, its called scout carry, more tor for concealed carry.  But it was my 1st attempts at that style.  But i do make normal conventional sheaths. The thing about the horizontal sheath, is that its a ambidextrous sheath. Since most people like one way or the other way.

Title: Re: My work

Isn't a belt loop also ambidextrous ?

I can see the scout carry just getting caught up on stuff or being really uncomfortable if you sit down or drive.

AS an ambidextrous person I generally hang a knife sheath on whichever side of my belt has space :-)

My gerber usually rides on my left, so knives tend to go on the right.
But I've had them on the left before.
Never noticed any side specific issues with a vertical pouch. 

It also looks like if the catch comes loose, a knife could easily fall out of a horizontal scabbard - particularly if you were hiking or climbing or going through any kind of brush.

Usually the side that is stitched, is usually the back side of the sheath. I actually tried and carried one of those knives the other day. Which i went  into town, and drove. I live in a state with great concealed carry laws. I carried it for about 2 hours, my only issue was that the loops were a little too big, by maybe 1 inch, which it was my first time making it, I did drive with it. I didnt even notice it was there.  It is a big knife, but it wasnt bad at all, i actually really liked it. The wrap with the snap is on pretty good. Its snapped through the leather, and other side it is glued on. Usually i will wet form my knives to make a molded fit, its usually really tight.

I think i might have tomake a small one for you to try this year at some point.  But i am hesitant on the customs shipping it though.

You might have better luck shipping to the UK if it is labeled as a historical replica.  I know that's a common thing when people in the UK buy swords.

Thats a good idea, i remember a few years ago. I did send a old antique knife to England.  Unfortunately i forgot what i wrote on the customs form. I believe itt was along the lines of 'camping knife' he did receive it, though.

Matt Easton of Schola Gladitoria on YouTube is an active sword collector in the UK and recently warned everyone not to use FedEx to ship any blades into or around the UK.
