I'm in with this Dozier-designed folder: (Image removed from quote.)This is an ancient knife for me......I can't really recall when I got it. Maybe the 80's? It's made in Japan for Kabar. D2 steel (Dozier design, right?). Aluminum scales. I was drawn to the simple, slim design. Dozier's never seem very fancy or ornate to me, be he really seems to excel with ergonomics and utility. While this design is of limited practical utility, he nails the ergos. The D2 has developed a few spots of corrosion, but for an old knife that saw a fair bit of carry time in it's day, it's in remarkable shape. (Image removed from quote.)
Dozer what?! I'm so ignorant ...
I've used leather purses for their leather on sheaths but they are not ideal. Heavier weight leather is better as the purse leather is still a bit flimsy.
Agreed. I do have a few slip cases made from thick old purse leather.
Here's my Dozier Personal and a new sheath I banged up for it:(Image removed from quote.)Good fit:(Image removed from quote.)I'm quite happy with the way this turned out. The sheath's style is a bit more flamboyant than I usually do, but it was designed to be a bit curvy so I could use it as part of the sheath-making demo in the February Fixie Challenge. Regardless, I like it.
