Well first off congrats
Java / Samo, where didja get that sheath? It looks very nice and I have been looking for a kiwi sheath for a while. Thanks for any pointers.
The sheath came from Justin Reichert's Custom Leather. I caught his work at the Spirit of Steel show this year. He doesn't have a web site unfortunately but he can be reached at 620-241-4041. His prices are very reasonable for custom leather work. The sheath also included a a braided leather cord for the lanyard hole.
I wish I'd taken some pictures before shipping to Samo but maybe we can talk our adventurous reporter into a shoot.... after resting up from the ceremony at hand, of course.
