When I was on the floor at Ford Dearborn Tool and Die, we used to do a lot of what we called "government" work. My friend and journeyman Jack Parry made this knife for me out of D2 with cocobolo. I still have D2 and S7 blades rough cut to shape with cocobolo blanks.....maybe some day. 

I have had this knife as a safe queen for years. Another friend has http://www.wolf-lodge-traders.com/catalog.htm and just made me this Mexican style sheath this past week. George is also modeling many of the pictures of the clothes his wife makes.

I really like the sheath. That would be a cool attachment on a hunting saddle.

Now I need to go out and get a single action and have a holster made by your friend.

D2 is a very good steel for knife blades and that blade is a beauty.Coco bola wood also has a very sweet look to it.

The leather work on that sheath is very nice.
