Sheath for the Leverletto?

Hi folks! I know I haven't been around in awhile, but thank God, I've been busy. :D I was wondering if any of you gentlemen would mind showing me the sheath you carry your LLO in.

Re: Recent Leverletto build with filework

I give credit for this to the guys in here who inspired me to do such things. :) If not for some folks in here, I may very well have never attempted something like this. People like Mr. DeShivs and a few others made it easy for me. 8) Been making these as gifts and need more kits. :D

Need to sell...

Hi folks, I know I have not been around in awhile, but I've been busy. I have come to the conclusion that I need to sell a few knives and am willing to make someone here a really good deal on 5 new condition german leverlocks. They are as follows: 1 Hubertus Guardian in stag. Never used, new conditi...

Re: Good music and BAD news :[

Well then you should buy some of their CD's and enjoy their music, several of their songs were written by Bob Dylan so it's really timeless music
Exactly. Personally, I prefer vinyl. :D I'm no old fart, but my buddy and I play this type of stuff on guitar. :o

There is certainly something special about the way these guy's brains work whether on powered or non-powered bikes. Ever seen any motorised trials comps? :?:

Re: Boy scout no knife

My very first project when I was in Cub Scouts was sewing together a sheath for a folder...We were taught to respect weapons and to view them as tools rather than offensive items. To this day, I know of none of my fellow scouts who are in jail for mis-using any type of weapon. :o

Mr. DeShivs may or may not have modified someone else's design, but if not for that brand of thinking, we'd all still be driving horses i...
