Cammilus skinner

I recieved this knife in a trade a few months ago. It was made by Cammilus, supposedly for Marbles. I cannot claim to know anything more than it was made by Cammilus, and is no forgery. I'm in the process of making it complete.

Hopefully, it will soon have a leather western style saddle sheath.

It's a work in progress.

That handle looks to be carbon fiber, Tooly, you are a real artist, I can't believe the patience you must have to produce everything that you do.

Tooly:

You ever considered making a sheath out of Kydex? All you really need is a large toaster oven to heat the Kydex, a press to form the warm Kydex around the knife, and a drill and rivets to button everything up.

These guys sell Kydex in different colors, including tools, rivets, presses, etc.

As for the sheath, after you wet form and bone the leather, what type of thread will you use to stitch it? Also hand sewn - or machine sewn?

Here's a good site for leather working: http://leatherworker.net/

Re: Cammilus skinner

That Kydex stuff is cool looking, lots of different colors, I wonder if I could make a custom pick case out of that? I am not that crafty but that stuff is cheap enough.

If I had more patience, my projects wouldn't take so long to complete. I would like it if I was artistic, but in truth I'm just a determined DIY cheapass :lol:

Hallis: Kydex was my first choice, but every time I have ordered from knife kits I wait, and wait, then they send me an email that the stuff I want is on backorder :evil: I've tried to order 3D g10, kydex, and various other parts and pieces with no reward. I don't know if it's bad luck, but they've given me the run around 1 too many times and I don't refer people to them anymore.

I don't know what type of thread to call it, but it's heavy. One of the guys I work has a machine, and I just used what was already on the bobbin. Now I just have to treat it.
