    That $60 knife in 50-75 years may be worth a lot more. Just something to think about.

    That's true, actually. I'm not going to mess with it any more, but this is the result of some gentle cleaning and scraping. I'm wondering who in the world managed to make the scratches in the tip of it- even with me scraping it it didn't do that, haha

    I do have the sheath also but its... rough- to say the least. My dad said he thinks its probably been sitting in the sheath without any care for 30 years. 20181125_212912.jpeg 20181125_212924.jpeg

    Yep. @dial1911 is the resident sheath expert. And his sheaths have a kydex lining so they aren't going to hold moisture and potentially cause more pitting like an all leather sheath. He does damn good work too at affordable prices. You better jump on it though before he realizes just how much he's under-charging people. ;)

    For this particular knife, I'd like to keep it all original and just try and rehydrate the leather a bit- its already softened up somewhat.

    However, for a future knife I could definitely consider this... is there somewhere I can see your sheaths?
