  10. My latest creation, a KA-Bar Survival Knife Sheath and Pouch. The knife is a KA-Bar 1211 military knife. The sheath is designed to be worn either horizontal or vertical. The pouch hold a fire-starter, a diamond knife sharpener, a button compass, four aspirin tablets, ten water purification tablets, four waxed cotton tinder balls, five fishing hooks, five sinkers, and ten feet of 5lb test fishing line. The colour comes from Fiebings green dye, tandys dark brown antique, and tandys professional gold waterstain. I built this for me, but custom make them for anyone at $250 per, knife and all survival gear included.
