this hike was mostly so i can do an axe chop off between the gransfors bruks small forest axe and hunter's axe to determine which i like better...and sell off the other. see this thread for more details on the hunter's axe: http://jungletraining.com/forums/showthread.php?29144-gransfors-bruks-hunter...

yup, one of many mistakes i learned - get all the sanding done, rinse the kydex thoroughly and rivet it last. no biggie - i have a 2nd cts-xhp that's still new. i'll probably scratch that one next when i try my hand with leather sheaths or diy handles, haha.

nice! that pro kydex press is nice but i found a way to avoid spending that kind of cash for one though - unless you'll be doing lots of sheaths. here's a kydex tutorial i wrote awhile back that might be useful to some: http://jungletraining.com/forums/showthread.php?21502-how-to-make-kydex-sheaths .
