    I've made only a few stock removal pieces, one of which was just a gift. I know how you feel about knowing there are imperfections. But that's what drives you to be better at the craft, and strive for quality that you can be proud of.

    Cameras are up and running. Probably need to adjust some setting and what not in the NVR. Glad to have them going.

    Finally dug into the knuckle knife sheath. I blacked the brass snap. Just folded over the top to create a belt loop.

    We will see...

    It will all be black in the end of course. Some areas are easier to get to before folding and/or stitching. I am no leather craftsman. But one thing that bugs me when I receive a black sheath, is that it's not all black. Or they didnt dye the inside and you can see it.

    Not sure if this is the place to ask, but how do you go about blacking the leather?

    Still haven't finished this sheath. I hang my head in shame.


    Current project i hope to be done this weekend. This is a gift for an old timer I work with. Guy is 63 and climbs the hell out of towers/poles and is just an animal. Bad ass musician and super into muscle cars. I had this idea for a long time for him.

    Fordite pick guard for his guitar. Still fitting it up, but not too far off.

    After this and cleaning the shop, I'm starting in on some field scalpels from @blackmetal1181 ! I am excited for those. Sorry for the delay.

    This is done. I'll be happy to get it back to my buddy. Pretty happy with how it came out.

    On a different note, Halloween is not that far. Thinking about starting with this, cheating? Would be great to see more people involved this year.
