One of my all time favorites is this old CASE XX knife.
Me and this old knife have spent a lot of time together.
I just recently made this new sheath for it.
The old one had seen better days. The compressed leather knife handle has held up really well and is almost indestructible.
The sheath is almost an exact copy of a knife sheath that I saw years ago...minus the retaining strap. It's "whip stitched" with heavy latigo lace. It has a nice pigskin lined rear face.
The knife is 11" overall length & the blade measures 6"
It's a super nice utilitarian knife & keeps a great edge. It's seen a lot of wet days of hard work in the woods...so the blade displays a bit of understandable character. This knife is like a trusty old reliable friend so I thought I would share it with you all knife lovers.
The blade profile fits into the interior welt of the sheath exactly...BUT, what holds the knife in??? You say.
There is a REALLY STRONG magnet inlay-ed into the back leather panel. One of my weirder ideas but, it works fine & no retaining strap to chance on slicing off when putting the knife into the sheath.
The blade is slightly magnetized now though...not really a problem out in the woods.
