    Nice set up!

    Did you use the nuts and bolts so it can be reused for something else as well?

    I'm sure you will enjoy that knife for many years to come. That first photo would also make you a good avatar pic

    thanks i like it so far. i used the nuts and bolts mostly cause thats what i had on hand, the plastic is from a chainsaw oil bottle that i held under very hot water to make bend easier.

    Hey that's a sheath I wouldn't have thought about. I love your innovation there! Have you though about taking another oil jug and melting the ends together with a torch and flat piece of steel? Don't get me wrong though, I actually like the nuts and bolts.
