You can just carry it in your pocket or on a belt using the rubber band.

… but not least… It makes a neat little necker.

Mister Go, That's a great little "Pockadashi"! Thanks for posting a picture of it! Very creative! Every since you mentioned it to me thinking of how you were going to use the rubber band had me stumped. The scabbard is two pieces held together with the pin and the Turks head. Is it glued also? Interesting finish on the blade. Is the texture one that can be felt? I just noticed the hook, now that's classy.

Is that a primitive rubber band? Nice work.

Thanks guys.

Ray, yes it is also glued. The texture is just on the front (bevel side) and can be felt. The back needs to be flat/smooth for sharpening. The brass pin also only shows on the front so you know which way it goes together.

I really like the rubber band, looks fine (once you get past the preconceived notions about rubber bands) and works great,... but you could tie it together with something else. It doesn't have to have elasticity to work, but it would be a bit slower to tie it.

The nice thing about the rubber band is it can be replace very easy. You need to find some in multiple colors so they can match the person dress or shorts. :D

The Goo is like rubber in a lot of ways... LOL

Tai, One of the things I have admired about you is your flexability even if I can't spell it. The true "Rubber Bandman"! :D I can also see a lot of thought went in to the scabbard design. 2thumbs Keeping things simple requires a lot more thought than most are willing to invest.

I love that little scabbard Tai. Cool little knife.

Cool jewelry/cutlery Tai! Have you thought of stretchy colored hair ties such as these?

Here's an idea for a mod (not that you asked). Make it so the butt end of the knife can slip into the other end of the scabbard such that the scabbard becomes a handle. Maybe the brass pin could become a peg through the eye on the blade to hold it in place in the handle? Just imagining out loud.

Hey Tai, You'd never guess Farmer Phil was a school teacher. :D Its really not a bad idea.

I need to load my ox/acd bottles on the truck and exchange them but the desire to go on a long ride is not there. Think I'll go bang on some steel before I change my mind.

I did try some hair ties. The round ones "roll" off the post too easy but do look nice, and the flat ones aren't elastic enough. Nice idea though. :)

I'm sticking with the rubber band for now. I'm actually thinking of incorporating the rubber band in more of my scabbards. It really works great, and as far as I know has never been used this way before... Quintessential neo-tribal.

Here's some shots of number two. I've been carrying number one and really like it.

I do not think the rubber band doesn't takes away from anything especially when there nice and fresh. Now if I were carrying it it would be lost by now.

That's because you would keep using it for a slingshot to make a dart out of that little blade for squirrel hunting!

Phil, I've got my miniature cross bow for that. Now if I could just fine it. :D

I'm not sure how to take that Ray? It almost sounds like a double negative?

I bet you wouldn't lose it if your name was on it. I can initial it for you,... your full name would be too much work for the money. LOL 2thumbs
(number two is sold, but I still have the original.) I'll sell it to you used.

Actually, a round black hair tie might work O.K. for a necker, if I modify the post a little. It does look good with the cord. However, for "pocket carry" and maximum security, I'll stick with the #64 rubber band,… only because I like myself so much. :bud:

Tai, How about the blue rubber band that comes with some of the produce the wife purchases? I think ol #64 looks just fine. 2thumbs

Goody, Ray's going to do a WIP on making a miniature crossbow next. Wow, from knives, to swords, to spears, to harpoons...and now a crossbow. This place is incredible! I can hardly wait. :p

Phil, I think its time to replace your old crystal ball. :D Actually while I was a senior in high school the only class I passed on a regular basis was woodshop. If there was more time left to the school year a crossbow was going to be my next project. Who knows it may still happen. How about a crossbow harpoon launcher. When's whaling season open?

I have an old tribal, Vietnamese crossbow that my grandpa brought back from his missionary days over there. You can use it for a pattern. :D I'll see if I can get some pics of it.

Peter, Please do that. I'd be interested in seeing it if nothing else. Still can't figure out where Phil came up with this crossbow thing. Maybe it has to do with the rubber band.

Ray,

Maybe it has to do with a rubber head. ;):D You seem to have an unending supply of unique ideas bouncing around in that old noggin' of yours. :D

I sure would like to see your take on a harpoon launching crossbow :eek::D

Tai - another creative winner of course.
Possibly in the spirit of the Neo you might consider planting your own rubber tree and harvesting your own goo for processing?

Tracy, it's easier just to buy them. Recycling them kind of fits with the neo, but I'm not sure I like the bright colors of the broccoli bands... There are some weeds out here that have a latex type substance in them,... but traditionally it just gets smoked.
