    This is how I got a co-worker's 'bush knife':

    He wanted it a bit shorter and with an at least a little bit ergonomic handle.
    Sadly I just ground off the handle and realized too late that it was good and hard olive wood, maybe next time I'll think quicker...

    So this is it right now, the handle is done, made of antler that fits so well in the hand with a carbon fiber guard and teak wood at the butt. On the blade I'd like to remove some minor scratches, but I guess he'd be satisfied anyways.
    I hope it will serve hime well after retiring at his house in Southern Italy.

    I hope I'll be able to take better pictures before I have to give it away, still unsure about a sheath though...

    I just finished modding the kydex sheath of my Bolte Scout knife. Not it's far more comfortable when I bend down or sit and I have kydex leftovers that I can make something of them, maybe belt hanger or something...

    And this is how it arrived:

    Also few days ago I made a 'pommel' on my modded Mora and a new, better sheath:

    Customized Higonokami. Slightly polished vinegar etched blade, added stop pin to prevent the edge from touching the handle at the inside, folding sheath, leather lanyard, bead made from a turned brass screw.

    That's a pretty creative way to make an attached sheath! Don't think I've ever seen anything like it. And I DO like it! If I was going to get a knife like this -- even one of the Sanrenmu knives -- I can see a sheath like this being great.

    Bet I'm not the only one....!

    Actually the idea is not mine, I've seen it on a Higonokami on the bay but I can't find that product anymore.
    It was fun to try it and to use my knowledge in leatherworks though ;)

    Adahn...EXCELLENT work on that machete, and AWESOME job on that Higo!!! Your mod skills are improving a lot, if such a thing is possible.;)
    Moshe ben David...check out the old Cold Steel Triple Action folder...I think that's what it was called. Same concept as Adahn's mod, only his was much nicer.:cool:

    Be safe!

    Thank you about the machete, his new owner was happy, too. I just wish I had the time and the means to make a brass guard instead of carbon fiber. But yeah, it was an interesting project :)
    There's another knife like that Cold Steel one, the Fred Perrin Le Pititri Trifolder. I've seen a cool video about how to open and close it with one hand, nearly as cool as a balisong but not illegal 'round here.

    I found one Higo with a sheath like I've seen before on Czech internet site.

    They made a simple cutout for the pivot, I guess that's working same well as my version, maybe a hole would be a nice try as well.
