    That's a beautiful blade! Your brother is clearly very talented.

    I want believe how much you guys like the knife, makes me very proud to own it, a big thank you to you all.
    I'm thinking about making a sheath for it so it isn't just laying around. I was going to do what I'm best at and make a nice wooden presentation box for it but I thought a tough kydex sheath might be more fitting, and useful. What do you folks think? Presentation box or kydex sheath?
    I know it's really big for a carry blade but I have a few large knives and they all came with sheath of one sort or another, and they protect the blades well too.
    I've worked a little with kydex and with wood a lot but I believe I could pull it off in acceptable fashion.

    I vote both! Presentation box for when it's not in use and tough kydex for the field...

    I say both, also. The sheath, because your knife has been an awesome blade for you so far, why not carry it & continue to use it from time to time. The presentation box, because it's a beautiful thing and that would be a great display.

    Well, I had better get to work then. Wood I know about, and have many different kinds, kydex I know little about and have none. Also, I know to do it right (kydex) I'll also need some special bolts and nuts, maybe washers and various hardware bits. I'll have to layout and design both, the sheath, if it's to be truly functional and have and versatility and longevity, will require some study and thought on my part but I think if y'all help, we can do both. ��
    I've been wanting to build something new, I'll get started and make this blade a home, or two.

    He most definitely has skills. Maybe buy him a cheap harbor freight disk/belt sander at least?

    Ha ha, already did that, the little green one. I think it was a 1" belt or something like that, and about a 4" disk. I gave him that last time we saw each other around Christmas time, when he gave me the knife. I give him anything I have that might help him.
