KRal: WHENEVER I HAVE ORDERED A CUSTOM KNIFE I HAVE ORDERED A LH CARRY SHEATH AND THE MAKERS HAVE ALWAYS ACCOMODATED ME. WILL HAVE TO GET MY WIFE TO GET ME ON FB TO LOOK AT YOUR KNIVES.

GREAT KNIFE, THE ONLY FLAW I SEE IS THE SHEATH IS FOR RIGHT HAND WEAR. MOST GUYS ARE RIGHT HANDED SO MOST PISTOLEROS WEAR THEIR BELT GUN ON THE RIGHT SIDE, AND THE KNIFE ON THE LEFT.

BEAUTIFUL KNIFE I AM SURE MARK WILL LIKE IT.

Rey, I'm in the same boat as you (being a handgunner), I prefer a left handed sheath, but oddly enough most hunters want a knife on the strong hand side. That being said, most hunters I build for are not handgun hunters.


I usually use a crossdraw holster when hunting so I wear a knife on my right (strong) side. I've also come to like dangler sheaths over the last few years. They are user friendly for sitting on the ground or getting in and out of vehicles. They also keep the handle out of the way of the hip belt on backpacks. I never thought I would like a dangler sheath but once I tried them I was hooked.

Just curious, what grind do you usually put on your knives?

Phil, I do a flat grind on all my knives, as of now. One day I may get into doing hollow grinds - I don't know. To do a good hollow grind, it requires a jig (at least it would for me). I grind free-handed, so for now I'll stick to flat grind.

Great choice of grinds! I'm far from being an expert but IMO flat grind is a great choice for a wide variety of chores. Its also one of the easiest for most people to sharpen with minimal effort.
