    with a Hybrid Knife based out of the DJP 5.8mm 52100 stock blade but has a Woodlore edge profile and a drop point like a BG :O doe n with a Stout full flat to 35 deg fine secondary the scallop on the spine is one of my scraper edges Has Olive Drab G10 scales with 1/4" x 5/16" corby bolts in brass pins and Tube all textured stippled and has a bit of pommel tang showing for hammering as requested

    Spine shots showing the Scraper edge on the RH side of the OD knife this is because hes left handed so scrapes away or down easiest

    Looking good!

    Is the market for kydex really that much bigger than the actual knives you produce?

    well Ive had to buy in 9off 8ft x 4ft sheets of black in the last 6 months none of which was for a knife

    also I don't do any where near a 39hr week as Im a House husband with 2 Kids to deal with and a large House and garden which needs extensive work on top of the std Chores etc
    Some months I get a couple weeks straight some maybe a couple hrs

    But you do have a lovely wife Dunc - a sort of quiet delicate little blossom :) Say "Hi" to her and the twigs for me?

    Loving the knives too - that textured G10 is interesting
