    This is a remodeled Buck #119 I did for a Cowboy Action Shooter back east.
    He wanted a ball end guard, and a sheath to match his El Paso Saddlery two-gun rig.
    And he wanted 14 nails in the coffin, for some reason???

    Close as I could get it to match when the gun belt was on the east coast and the knife & I were in Kansas!
    Sheath has Latigo lacing, brass post keeper, and deer horn thong tips!




    Here is a Buck #120 this time, I did it for a guy with file work guard, silver Cloisonné Concho’s and hand tooling.
    Deer horn antler tips were hand carved and burned to raise highlights of the carving.


    And another #119 with silver Concho and silver dots and diamonds.

    Imitation Ivory of the time.
    I bought a big block of it from TKMS.

    Pretty nasty looking stuff compaired to the old Ivory Micarta.

    And it had glass fiber in it that ruined tools faster then I could sharpen or replace them.

    You are an artist! I like your sheath better than the holster.
