  1. Scott, i use 207 thread through a 24 needle or you can go a little heavier with 277 through a 25 needle. I go both top and bottom with each.
  2. I got some second hand information that Bob is having some pretty serious health issues. Sometime back, Bob beat cancer back in to remission but the word i got is it is back (lymphoma). Along with me a few prayers would be in order.
  3. one word, INLAY. Probably best on a knife sheath
  4. Rossr, you have a good start. From this point you need to make some different styles like the drop loop style for bowie style knives with a single or double guard. You apparently have the "Basic Pouch Sheath" DVD and as such the sheaths you show all look pretty much the same and that is because the knives you have covered are all pretty much the same. Design your sheaths with the blade shape in mind and do some more with inlays or overlays in mind. I don't keep or sell the DVDs you mentioned, but there are three more other than the Basic Pouch DVD and they will guide you to make nearly any style sheath you need. They are available from Chris Crawford Knives. I am also available to help you via phone any time 830 367 5536) or email pfl@cebridge.net free of charge. The work you have shown is good and will only get better and better with continued practice.
  5. Excellent advice here on the rubber finger covers. Also any fleece bearing leather is much more difficult to sew, by machine or hand. the fleece seems to "catch" the needle (and thread) often.
  6. Hold it in a flame briefly (match or lighter), the little leather plug will crawl out like a worm.
  7. Items in above post are sold. Thank you.
  8. I recently purchased these from a retiring leather craftsman. I don't use Craftaids. If you have any interest contact me at pfl@cebridge.net or 830 367 5536
  9. I recently purchased this lot of various lace from a retiring leather craftsman. These are relatively large rolls so there is quite a bit of lace here. If you have any interest contact me at pfl@cebrige.net or 830 367 5536
