    I think there are many old soldiers starting to embrace their prior service more. It kind of goes along with the healing process.

    A few of my customs that I ordered from Jason Fry. The bottom one (burl) is my personal favorite. All are CM 158 Stainless Steel blade material, brass bolsters and mesquite scales. Sheathes handmade by Jason Fry himself.

    How did I miss the last couple of pages of this thread? Some fine pieces added in.

    You went dark on us for a couple months. You probably missed the free AR that TLM gave all the active members for sticking with him.

    Thick enough leather so as not to pierce the sheath while stowing, a good welt to keep from cutting the stitching while sheathing. That little choyl (?) for the fore finger is a good spot for a rivet to effect a nestle/friction point to keep it secure w/o a strap. I'd lean toward a dangler type sheath, thought being, easily swing to/fro when bumped/brushed against things while walking.

    A friend made this sheath for me recently. Sorry about the size of the picture, it shrunk.

    Just finished my first custom knife last night. The blade is an old Nicholson file, the scales were made from a whitetail shed I found about 2 years ago. Copper pins and a brass lanyard sleeve. Blade polished to 200o grit. It's far from perfect, but this one was basically a test run to see if I was capable of making one. I now have a pile of rasps and plan to get into custom knife making.

    Lookin' sharp. Lookin' like some of the file serrations remain for effect?

    Yes sir. I intended to leave more but they faded out a little while I was polishing the blade.

    Did you anneal the file before you ground it then heat treated it after?

    Yes sir, annealed to red hot and then air cooled, blade profiled with grinder and files, then blade heated to red hot and quenched in vegetable oil, then wire brushed clean, then in the oven at 400 degrees to temper for 2 sessions of 2 hours each, then edge finished, polished and sharpened and handles shaped and epoxied/pinned in place and sanded to final shape.

    You did a really nice job. I have a few rasps that I want to make a couple knives with. Hope mine come out as good as yours did.

    Thank you sir. I was worried at first that I might screw it up, but then I really got into it and ended up doing a good job. The main thing to remember is be patient. Everyone liked it so much that people are already requesting knives. I've got 4 blanks shaped out already and 6 more ready to cut and shape. It's an addicting hobby.
