    My latest one - a drop point hunter for a friends 60th birthday

    Thanks for the compliment Bushcraftbasics appreciate it. Thanks JPSWorks, I use a 12" diameter, 1" wide contact wheel, with 30mm / 1.18" belts - equal overhang on both sides for the plunge lines, no tracking the belt left or right is required.

    My latest one - a drop point hunter for a friends 60th birthday

    Lanyard tubing - both on fixed and folders, need help

    Hi Razor-Edge I cant say I have ever seen tubing that looks like that in a store, but I dont think it should be too difficult to produce, either by turning down thick wall tubing in a lathe or by pressing a piece of thin tubing into a piece of thicker tubing. ie: press a piece of 6mm tubing...
