    I had to figure out the flaws and how to get it running right so i can help you with that(just adjustments and a little sandpaper) i dont think it looks as nice as the hand saddle stitch but i hate sewing by hand so this was a must have for me.

    Ok round two.

    It will work. This thing will get thrown in the tackle box anyway.

    Really wish I had the gumption to stitch the other one right now. Please baby jesus, let that one fit and work on the first try.

    So this happened on the filet knife sheath.
    20200216_130048_copy_768x1024.jpg
    On the next sheath I didnt wet the area of the seam at all and put this binder clip on there as a precaution.

    Seemed to go ok. I always have a noticeably better side. I was a bit scared for a minute. It was very snug. Ordering some eyelets to mount the clip. Keeping the sheath natural color, clip is black, nickel or antiqued nickel eyelets?

    Well, I think they will work. But, I have a lot to learn.

    Look at your custom knife cradles. Every time I make a sheath I tell myself I've got to do it more often but I never do.

    I'm not sure. but the clip looks a little short to hold securely onto the pocket. But, then again, everyones tastes and needs, are different.

    I can see what your saying. Those clips clamp down crazy tight. Extremely secure. Still not sure what I think overall though.

    Well I'm calling it on this one. First time doing any hand sanding on the blade. Definitely need to go a bit further before heat treating. On to the next one.....

    So far so good. Still a little fit up to do. Not sure what I'll do about the butt cap. The hole is not centered. So if I use a but cap it will not be centered. Hmm....
