NOTICE OF RETIREMENT: As of 2021, I am no longer taking orders for new custom knives or custom knife repair and conversions. For those of you who would still like one of my custom knives, I do have a few "On Hand", that can be shipped out ASAP. You should find the info and photos of them under the "Knives For Sale" section.  These remaining knives will be discounted by 30%, until they are all gone.
Thank you for your support over the years.  - Jay Maines

6A cross-draw, horizontal carry sheath built for a large knife, the Wild Boar Hunter. The lacing adds an interesting touch to the overall look of the sheath and is just as strong and reliable as standard hand stitching with waxed thread.

9An old Civil War era cut-down saber. It needed a new handle and a new sheath. To keep with the age of the knife we built a sheath with leather lacing around the outer edge. A Sam Browne button stud was used to hold down the keeper strap.
