    This time I got 3 good pins and 1 not perfect, which is better than 1 good one last time! :) And I learned a good deal about filing the blade down before putting the cutting edge on (still not THAT sharp), and also experimented a bit with the sheath and used a black layer between the blade and scales...

    Thanks guys, and YES! I am having a blast!!! As for picking things up quickly, I took my first Jiu Jitsu class last night and had several instructors ask me "how long I had been training"... they were all surpised at my answer of "Oh, about 45 minutes"... :)

    Anybody have any pointers from what they see here? or on my skinner thread?

    That is two in two weeks. You're hooked. Great looking knife and sheath. Just a hint. Don't move in to a new house and quit you job 9 days later. Just saying.

    does anyone know how minwax wood stain (like dark walnut) would do on leather? I may use that on these scales to see what happens, and was thinking about testing it on some scrap leather for the next sheath (or maybe this one)...
