Handsome work! Done yourself proud, I'd say.
While out and about today, picked up a Columbia River "Prowler" folder, 3,5 inch blade. Was cheap, 15 clams, drop point 1/2 serrated, titanium black coated blade/handle. Hefty for a folder. the serrations are wicked sharp (happend quick, no guitar playing tonight). Looks like one for the truck, prehaps in a foam insert in the door holder slots.
Man, nice work on the sheaths! Anyone who doesn't have a friend like you might take a look here for both folder and fixed-blade sheaths:
Mr. Cob really is the baddest.

this is a bad picture of a nice looking knife,Damascus steel and a bone handle from the UK
a cold steel san mai konjoi ,thats japanese for too nice to use,it stays in the sock drawer
Funny semi-related story. I went to the SOG outlet sale about a month ago in Lynnwood and they had everything and anything you needed or wanted at a great price. You could hold and check out every blade they sell. At the checkout counter was a box of band-aids...almost empty.
Got one similar.
A real pain to sharpen though. But when it's sharp, it stays long time.
Where did you buy the tanto? Is it the Cold Steel?
Edit: Forget it...I saw that it's the CS
WOW some nice knives in here, I have had this one for a number of years.
And a few more.
fiddling with a new, unfamiliar knife is always touchy, and I can see all kinda of guys "testing" the blades
and SOG has got some very nice, very sharp stuff. I'd have liked to make it to that sale.
i have been a knife maker/gun builder & engraver for many years - i even carry a band-aid in my wallet - hey - it's going to happen - i have more than one blade get hung up in a cloth wheel & get slung across the shop! I've only had to go in for stitches once in all these years - pretty lucky really - tom
Yup. Cloth wheels and blades are a bad mix, especially if they're turning fast enough to effectively polish. I had an edge catch -- ONCE -- took a dime-sized flap of skin out of my middle finger. Now I don't polish knives anymore.
it's all part of a days work for a knife maker!
I polish all my edges, as part of my sharpening routine.
Scariest one I did was an Angus Trim broadsword for a friend. Holy hell, 4+feet of razor sharpness on both sides. Pucker factor 9 on that one.
It is a very nice knife.
Yikes, to put it mildly.
Taylor Eye Witness. No clue as to what it's worth.
Top- Left: Cold Steel "belt knife", nice offset shape, poor plastic handle but overall kinda like it. Stays in the "Get Out Of Dodge" pack.
Right: Ka-Bar "short, straight blade" Nice
Lower- Left: Smith & Wesson SWAT something or other. Nice for the price, stays in the truck.
Right: Columbia River Kife Co- "Prowler", new. May go in the tank bag.
