Hey Dogs.. I got a young man that is leaving for Afghanistan in a couple months.. He approached me and wanted to buy a knife.. Now I wont do that.. I told him to pics out one from the designs I have made and I will make it for him.. He chose my Black Hawk and Im gona hook this young man up!
So Im making him a knife and need a good carry system.. At the moment Im not set up to do Kydex.. and dont have the time or space to get set up at the moment. So Im calling on all you guys looking for some help.
Would any of you be willing to work up a sheath for this young man? Please advise. Message me if you think you can help me out..
God Bless your troops!

If Dave ends up being busy when you get done with it, shoot it on over and I'll get it squared away for you.

I forget what you called that pattern in the Damascus (I call it Fu Man chu), but I love the contrast in the blade combined with the white liners and black scales. She's a beaut and here's hoping Dylan only needs to use it to open his MRE's... :thumbup:

Fu Man chu? lol
