Mk2 British Bulldog knife.

I’m realy happy how this second Variant of my British bulldog knife has turned out .

Cut from 4mm thick high carbon steel from a very old industrial saw blade  with an all over dark etch in ferric followed by a stone wash .

The scales are black canvas Micarta over coyote brown G-10 liners with bike chain ring bolts allowing various different lanyard options .

The wide/ stout re- curved blade makes for a very tough cutting platform which I hope lives up to the spirit of its British bulldog name .

I will post some comparison pics of the 2 variants soon oh and some pics of its sheath !

Custom Axe mask .

So here’s that carbon fiber pattern Holstex a thermoplastic similar to kydex axe mask that I recently made for a customer .

 There are 3 levels to the sheaths retention, first the close molding of the Holstex , second is the Mil-spec shock cord and cord-lock and 3rd a simple kydex hardware screw & post which allows the user to set the amount of retention / ease of draw .

File knife leather .

 Its taken some time to get around too but have finally made up a leather sheath for this forged Sheffield  file knife that I originally got from Bones last year .

The veg tan leather has been wet formed , double dyed for an aged effect  and then distressed on the workshop floor .

  Its set mainly for horizontal small of the back carry via the two copper saddlery riveted loops  but Ive also made up a vertical belt loop extender that allows for either a high or low ride in a vertical carry option .
