    It's ready for its test drive. I'm anxious to try it out.

    I like the way that you nested the kydex in the leather! The green stitching is really cool, too.

    I know who I'm buying a holster from from when I get my CCW. I could give a $hit about booze at 21, for me it's going to be all about the heat. ;):D

    Thanks @dmak. I get a better view of it up here. It's really comfortable barley notice it's on

    Finally got my pocket notebook cover finished. It is sized for Field Notes sized notebooks and is carrying a Goulet Pen Co. notebook right now. As you can see from the notebook I desperately needed this.

    I really like that. Have you made any horizontal fixie sheaths? Playing with the idea of making one.

    My first attempt at a sheath. It shows, lol. My Böker Rhino fits snug in it, and I learned a great deal from making it. I still have detail work to do, such as sending the edges, finishing and some trimming. I wish I had the talent you all show here. Next project is a wet-formed pocket sheath for my Böker Mini Pry. We'll see how it goes. Practice makes adequate, I say...

    Critiques are welcome.
    Thanks for looking! 20161228_185232.jpg

    Excellent first project. You will learn as you go. Leather work is fun and addictive.

    My biggest advice would be to practice your cutting. Veg tanned hide cuts different then a finished one. I like double shoulders between 9-11 oz., that's what I always get. It takes time and practice to get good at cutting. Ive learned that damp leather cuts smoother. I get great results using an OLFA Rotary cutter. Gives a nice clean smooth cut. Corners can be tough. I use an exacto knife, place the tip on the edge of the corner and slice down and out from the corner.

    Luck is the by-product of preparation and opportunity colliding. Stay Lucky!

    I tightened up the belt loop since taking these pictures and it doesn't droop any more. Leather is Horween Derby Charcoal.
