I'm not a knife guy (John is and he will post a followup here) but this guy had some interesting stuff in his bag.

The knives were all handmade in-house. They looked good and felt great, and the kydex sheaths were tight fitting and well made. Each knife you purchase comes with a matching sheath.

The other product you see is a $20 mounting kit that allows you to attach your sheath to something like a backpack or other bag that is traditionally difficult to attach a knife to. It is not a quick release as I first assumed; rather the mount attaches the sheath to the bag semi-permanently.

I'm not a big fan of finger grooves, but these are pretty well done. I also hate the so-called "American Tanto", but one blade version these guys offer is almost a drop point/AT hybrid. I like it considerably better than the AT.

Most of the handles were well-executed canvas micarta. I did think the carbon fiber handle would be better if it were "grippier". Sheaths fit tightly and are included.

At least one of these was in S35VN.
