    Buying a used Helle knife made in Scandinavia.

    My "project" this year is modifying knife sheaths. Found a guy who started making Mora and Becker 2 kydex sheaths a couple of months ago and is selling them on ebay. Got one in this week and modified it to be a horizontal/behind-the-back carry.

    As you are aware, many vertical knife sheaths may have a snap retention system for the handle of a knife. This presents some problems. Some of the cloth/leather/nylon material used in snap retention may shrink or get destroyed over time. And, if you wrap the handle or scales with 550 cord or tape, the snap system may not work because of the increased diameter. So, I am reviewing the youtube videos on using snap ring tools and will buy one, snaps, material and start replacing existing systems with more tolerance.

    The foregoing will keep me busy for a few weekends.:wavey:

    Those call to me quite a bit, I'd think it a near perfect EDC.

    I'm in love with the Insingo blade shape, very handy! Also glad I held out for the micarta inlayed version, it would be just a hair too small without.

    I haven't bought anything in a while. I ordered a Case/ Tony Bose Lanny's clip in ebony from my local store back when they things were first announced, and they sold the thing to some other schlub. I've been so irritated about that I've just been carrying stuff out of my collection for a while. I have pretty much everything, and not much new has come out lately that I'm interested in. Here are some of my traditionals.

    Yeah it is. I think you saw the thread where I read that someone wasn't happy with their edge so they used their EP to rebevel it and it took 3 HOURS?!
