    A leather embossed BCUK badge :You_Rock_
    Count me in, I've been toying with the idea of an embroided one but leather? That could be sewn onto a knife sheath and wouldn't look out of place....nice :)

    I'll buy one from you if I may please? I would supply a piece of leather of my choosing and no need to cut to shape or supply stitching line – just leave that to me. I can do a little leatherwork but not carving etc.

    PM me with cost?

    Cheers

    That's great but I would run it by Tony first as Jedadiah did with the idea.
    I'd love one of these but only if Tony is happy using the logo.

    Fantastic Topknot, i had in my mind a square badge with that logo on, but now i've seen your's, i'm impressed!

    Klenchie, you buy all these badges from TopKnot and Eric your gonna look like a cross between a Hells Angel and a Boy Scout! If you've got a leather possibles pouch, sheath and belt you'll be wearing more leather than a cow's flanks!

    Could this be the start of Bushcraft Fetishism? Klenchie, don't be asking Rapidboy to make you a leather Balaclava! :D

    I agree. They look very good. I would love to hear/ see how you tooled them and tinted them.

    This thread seems to have died a death so i'm breathing life back into it!

    If this is the kind of thing we are looking for, raise your hand and say Yeah!

    I've not heard back from Tony yet, but he is a very busy boy. Should we do a poll?

    Had a go at one myself last night - just to see how it went

    Did Tony ever state his position on this?
