    Cool! Glad you like it. This is the most recent version and I'm real happy with the handle shape. Feels real good. Also, the blue/black G10 looks way better than it does in the picture.

    I'm anxious to get your sheath started.

    I'll keep you posted.


    Stay tuned. :ross:

    Ha! Thanks man. I do have to admit, it came out pretty damn nice.


    In fact I need to make myself one some day.

    The craziest think about making knives is that now I never seem to have a knife. Everytime I make myself something I just end up selling it.

    Pretty damn nice indeed, MO!!!

    If you stopped making everyone else one you would have plenty of time to make one for yourself. I wont take the blame for that one:bwah:

    It's all on me buddy. Can't resist the vicious cycle of make a knife, sell it, buy materials, make more knives, sell them, buy more materials, mak :panic:.....well you get the picture. I need to make myself an ugly one that nobody wants.

    HaHa, I heard you there bro. I tend to sell/barter for something different quite often. More firearms:bang: than blades since I am just now getting back into blades. But I understand the need for something different.

    I dont think I will be letting my FOS go though. Its going to be a keeper I can already tell this!!!!

    And I dont think there is a such a thing as an ugly FOS....lol Unless you buy back someones user 10 years down the road:mack:

    And here I thought you had blown off the leather work today. Figured you decided to beat on your shop assistant all day....haha

    Looks great, brother.

    Your the man, MO

    Had to be done. Looked over my shoulder and caught him mad-doggin' me. You know, staring me down all diagonally. The m.o.b. shop can not tolerate that level of disrespect :slap:

    Can't do it. He taught me everything I know about defense against armless, legless, bald guys.

    He makes me feel safe.

    Kris? Is this what we were going for?

    You know I'm usually a kydex guy but this came out pretty sweet. I may have to do this for my personal carry.

    Leather horizontal sheath for the F.O.S.

    (edit: I have discovered that a feature I put on this sheath is another makers unique concept. So I have removed the description and detailed pics of this feature out of respect for the original designer)

    Now I just have to figure out get all this black dye and barge cement off of me.


    Let me know what you think.
