Sheath Project (PVC Pipe)

A couple years ago, I was out running in one of our local parks and found a big hunting knife on the trail. A little research indicated that it was a German-Made Edgebrand #432 Arkansas Toothpick. Very old and the etching on the side ("Arkansas Toothpick") was worn off, but it cleaned up nicely. I don't think it had been out in the elements that long. Thinking it may be a family handmedown or something like that, I checked with the park rangers then did run a lost/found listing in the largest TampaBay Gun Club, of which I'm a member, and had no claims, so assumed I could keep it.

At that point, the only thing I needed for it was a sheath and, for that, I made one … out of pvc pipe. I got the idea doing some net surfing and then found a number of how-to vids on youtube. Nothing too it really. I used old pvc I had laying around and four ratchet-bar clamps, my eight dollar Harbor Freight heat gun with some blocks of wood to shape it. Came out nicely!

It was a fun project.

So then sometime later, the NRA sends me a beautiful Buck #113 Ranger Skinner knife in the mail with a note stating that it was a gift for all my support…and then goes on to say that I can buy the sheath for another $100 or something like that. Nothing is worse than giving a little and then getting bugged for more. So I made another sheath for that out of junk pvc I had laying around.

YukonPete Here is a little beauty I just picked up on ebay - Spyderco Persian 2. I bought this for one reason only - it looks AWESOME! Surprisingly it is the best "feeling" knife I have ever owned. It is also very easy to flick open and close with one hand. VG-10 steel. Who needs a Sebenza!! Only kidding...

A Sharpfinger is a great EDC fixed blade. I have a few of them. The new ones are crap, but you can find the old US Schrades on the bay for pretty cheap.

Perfect size IMO.
