Great work Jens! As are the knives in parts 2 and 3 above, including very, very nice sheaths. This pic is a winner in my book too. Why not shoot it down for a week 20 entry?

All your new pics look great. How did you do the lizard shin overlay? Inquiring minds want to know:)

Thanks for the words guys!

Bob: I used contact cement called Klebbfest........I roughed the kydex with 100 grit sandpaper and put a good amount of glue on each part...then after the skin was applied I secured the edges with superglue. That will make the edges hard and less prone to separating. I have yet to hear for the customer to see how it holds up but because of that I guess it is pretty good. (and btw...LOVE that banner Bob)

Jens, I really like the Raptor. Very clean. Appears difficult to make.
