  1. Aloha all, I'm currently looking to purchase a better swivel knife than what I currently use (craftool) I'm looking for some input. Has anyone on here bought the clay Miller SK it's all brass and I believe he was selling them for $85. I'm also considering the leather wranglers all brass option for $110. Any and all input is appreciated.

  2. I'm currently looking to get into holster making. I'm looking to make some pancakes and iwb type holsters. Though my research I have found that 7/8 seems to be pretty common weight. My question is do I need to line that with maybe 2/3 oz? If so what does everyone think about using 4/5 and lining with the same weight?

    The reason I'm considering 4/5 is that I could also possibly use that for maybe some wallet type things also.

    Thank you all for the help and inspiration. Mahalo

    Thanks Malabar & Red Bear!

    Correct on the thickness Malabar. The belt comes out to 16 oz or roughly 1/4" thick with the 2 layers of 8 oz glued and stitched. Between the leather being that thick, the cement (I use Barge or Masters, whichever I happen to grab) and the double stitching I don't bother to add any other stiffeners. The holster, as well as the mag pouch, is also 8 oz leather so it's roughly 1/4" thick where it's stitched and 1/8" at the "pockets".

    Red Bear, I probably should keep better track but it's usually mixed by whatever is left int he bottle or however much will fit in the bottle I'm mixing it in. If I had to guess or wanted to replicate it I'd try 4 parts brown, 2 parts oxblood and then cut that almost in half with alcohol. That may need adjusted somewhat but it should give you a starting point.

    Have a great Friday gents!
