Let me know......
A beautiful example of what works, but might not be "pretty" to some.

Dixie Gun Works has a Sheffield made Bowie that is period correct and made to the specs of their original. I picked one up for the same reason that you want one for.

BHT's skinner fits on my gun belt like it was meant to be there - the color match of the leather with my holsters is right on. I have a match next sunday - I'll post another picture of this bad boy on game day.

Pay no attention to the tennis ball - however, 7 free interweb points are awarded to anyone that knows what the tennis ball is for.

BHT - you are the man - the knife looks like it was meant to be there - thanks again for providing that finishing touch that I was looking for !!!

Enjoy it. As all things it need to move to a better home.....

Glad I could help a brother.

One note. The belt over the blade section holds it in tight. I usually wore it in the small of my back with my buckskins. It works either way......


Hummm. Ball keeps the shape???

They are "authentic" leather holsters so they are not lined with metal or plastic inserts. The tennis ball keeps the mouth of the holsters open so it doesn't flatten out and take a set during storage.

I’d like to see a foto with the pistol in the holster. The sheath and holster do look like they are a set. Looking good.

I second that; looks like the same tanner did it all while you were awaiting trial for something.

Well, in my case when I got my last hernia, I wrapped a tennis ball over it with an Ace bandage until the surgery. Gapping a holster works, too.

Did some cowboy action shooting today with that knife and sheath on my gunbelt - not sure if it made me shoot any faster - but it sure made me feel like I was shooting faster.
