Thanks De-Mo. Absent the braiding I will be making one soon.
Dennis this was a great build along and the work is very professional. I have one question about the belt loop. With the loop being attached (sewn) below the center line of the the sheath, does the top of the knife want to fall away from the loop at the top? Do you attach the top of the loop at the top of the sheath?
It's probably just a nit but it is something to think about. With smaller/shorter knives it might not be an issue as with a longer blade.I do not attach the loop at the top of the sheath. Although it could easily be accomplished. I have not received any complaints about fall away from the loop at the top of the sheath. Until now, I have never really thought about it. Now I am going to have to ponder that question.
Alright De-Mo here is take two...Chris your basketweave looks really nice. All lined up, deep impressions, good starts and ends. Very nice. The camoflauge is pretty good. I have one suggestion. Line up the bottom point on the bottom point of your last impression. It will keep your border evenly spaced. Like this. We will work on the groover. I now understand what you were referring to earlier. Driving through paint or something similar.
