    Been in a knife frenzy.

    Here's the darned thread that got all of this started:

    SO...I Just Bought One Of These Puppies In D-2 Tool Steel

    A few days after reading it, several boxes of knives, sheaths, grips, etc started being delivered to our house. My wife asked what's with all of the purchases, and I'd tell her every time she asked, I'd just utter one word........ "QKShooter"! Luckily, I've been able to stay in the clear with that excuse, wife is confused though.

    After reading the thread above, I started looking at KaBar knives, and bought that D'eskabar BK24, then I bought a BK2, then I bought a BK9, then I bought micarta grips, then I bought two sheaths on Ebay, then I had a sheath custom-made, then I stripped the black paint and put on some patina.

    I'm too busy with knives to get any chore stuff done around here, at least that's what I'm hearing.

    Here's a picture. The middle sheath is a Scout worn horizontal for the BK2, the largest is the custom-made cross draw for the BK9 and BK24, the empty sheath was one from eBay, it's made for the BK2. Can you tell I like the older looking styling?

    Anyway I'm done for now with knives, but seriously I really like how it all came together........actually thanks to QKShooter for the thread. They make good stuff.

    Maybe I should try that one word excuse. It might work.

    Knives look great, do you plan on changing them with your different carries?

    First you throw QKshooter under the bus and then you Thank him , he is going to be very confused . I would get some more knives but with the guns i have been buying with my "mad money" i gotta try to convince the wife " I Had That Gun in the Safe for years"

    And not do it while looking at the ground . Enjoy the knives .

    I caught the knife bug a few years ago and am still trying to cure it. The Becker line was one of the first I began collecting. The BK2 is my first and favorite, and I also picked up the Camp Knife, and the bowie models over the years. Had the good fortune to meet Ethan Becker a couple of years back at Smoky Mountain Knife Works during their "Dealer Days" week. A true gentleman and scholar of all things that cut and slice. I tip my hat to you on a truly SUPERB purchase sir!!!

    "I'm too busy with knives to get any chore stuff done around here, at least that's what I'm hearing."

    And in a proper household that is exactly how it should be.

    I love the way you have had your two knives piggybacked together.

    I have been waiting patiently all of these years for one single solitary forum member to actually follow one of my suggestions and finally somebody did!
    Seriously...That will be an extremely useful combination.

    Let it be known that (in reality) I have had so many "chores" to do around here + family obligations...that things have really kept me away from my leather work.
    But, on the bright side I have finally decided to do a piggyback sheath for the BUSSE NMSFNO.
    I was torn between adding an additional smaller knife to NMSFNO or to the Team Gemini and the NMSFNO won out.
    So now I had best hurry up & get started on that I reckon.


    Let me try hard to get mine started and finished this week.

    We all follow your suggestions it just that they're so darn clever we tell everyone they're our ideas so you never know.
