    A few to look at, they sure are sweet. Came right from the Philippines.

    The Filipinos have access to some beautiful woods, and the handles show it.

    They are extremely strong feeling and feel nice in hand. There is probably 7 or 8 different styles/sizes for sale, after plastic work is done. They seem to be all unique.

    Please explain. Are they your knives or from someone else selling them and what do you mean "plastic work"?

    Those are them, I just thought a few more sales might happen here. I am making plastic sheaths for him and doubt he would mind.

    Kydex and a leather strap with locking snap or a solid strap which I prefer. It would be a super combo, no matter the blade. I really was only posting mostly because everyone likes pics and I saw a big thread about a guy thinking of a giant knife or something called a smachet and the talk of a karambit. but I didn't want to intrude. Plus I hoped to post something to get the thoughts from our huge loss of RC. The link was going to be posted in the near future, something to think about.

    You may want to reconsider using a leather strap and instead work with some of the synthetic materials since they won't stretch when humidity or moisture is high. Also, it looks like the makers have used pocket clips to help retain the blades in the sheaths (interesting idea) and similar tension/compression retention ideas could be incorporated using thermo polymer.

    Look at knifekits.com for ideas on what is available. http://www.knifekits.com/vcom/?cPath=41

    They are worth every penny, hopefully a little Pakal will be mine for keeps. I don't hunt or need one but they can be carried and will be a blazing fast deployment.

    I just wanted to put up a pic with the kydex I finished on them. There is a link around, above.
