Hey guys, heres a couple that are heading back to me, yea it wasnt quite what he was looking for, but thats ok, I get to play with more gator hide! :101

First is for a Leaner Meaner, black gator hide, steel clip on back, I love the way this one carries the knife.

This next one is for an Active Duty, the color is called butterscotch, this is a wonderful colored skin. The sheath is a pouch type sewn up both sides and incorporates a "Loveless Cam" inside for a nice firm click when the blade is seated. :D

The clip is something I did every now and then, a year or so ago it really took off and now I do quite a few. I found a knifemaker supply here in Texas that makes some great clips, very strong and durable. I really like the clips for smaller knives, no unbuckling that belt to take the sheath off, and the clips are so secure they wont come undone.

Thanks for the kind words Alex, Gator has to be my favorite so far. Cant wait to get into those back scales for the bigger knives. Though I'm not sure what I'm going to cut them with! :eek:
