Here's part 2 of my little knife story .

My pal Fredo who owns & operates Star Leather here in San Diego & who let me use his facility to make my knife handle in the earlier post , made this slick little sheath for me yesterday . He knocked it out in about an hour & 1/2 only counting for a few " high-deas " and a couple mistakes it turned out awesome .

I wanted to be able to put the knife on or take it off my belt without removing the whole belt so he came up with this tricky little system . You just unsnap everything , pass it up & under your belt and viola . You're geared up and ready for some camping or urban warfare or whatever kind of shit you're into .

I also wanted a place where I could attach a lanyard to keep it from flopping around if I were wearing it on a bike and jamming out or climbing a rock face like David Lee Roth looking for adventure . He came up with this little utility tab . Bingo , keeps getting better huh ?

So if you need some sweet custom leather gear made up for you right here in the USA and you want it a certain way or color or whatever , Fredo is your man and Star Leather is where you want to go . (619) 302 4159 The website's not much to look at right now but the number is good and he will take care of you . I can't promise hell get it done in 2 hours , but we're tight bros and that's how we roll . You're experience might differ slightly .

Rad!!! I left a comment on part 1 also, then remembered I had another Camillus knife. It was a USMC "Fighting Knife", really just a cheap version of a Ka-Bar. I lost it somewhere at a state park on a Boy Scout campout. Lost knives!
