SAK pouches

Here are some SAK pouches I made lately. I wanted to check how different leathers, finishes and threads will work, so each pouch was different. I didn't plan that but it occured that this design works best with only 1-2 layers SAK, so I need to work on a design to fit bigger SAKs.

Pirate Coffins 1

Here are some pictures of the new item I have designed and made with my brother. This is a keychain prytool made of  2mm thick titanium with a coffin shape. Lenght of the tool is 6,5mm - a size of a big house key and weight as much as a standard metal key.
The logo on the tool have two additional crossed lines below looking like pirate's crossbones and that is why I have called the tool "Pirate Coffin".
For sure the funcionality of this micro tool is limited but it always feels good to have a piece of titanium in the pocket and save your knife tip from being damaged. Also it should be a perfect addition to some bigger projects.
Soon I am planning to design a leather pouch for Pirate Coffins so with a pouch and some nice lanyard it will look classy ;)

Another compilation of SAK scales. Lets start with your favourite Star Wars themed scales ;)
My new favourite for brass "burning forest" finish for 91mm scales

...andew finish for copper. I am using it a lot in last works.

I wanted to make such scales for a long time.I called it NEO design. There will be some changes and for sure I will use more than once.

Brass Tactical Fishes with bronze beads

Matching set of brass Tactical Fish bottle openers with handmade bronze beads.
Making the beads was a lot of fun! That is why I have ordered some titanium and copper tubes and planning to make also titanium and copper sets like these in the future. They just look much better with the lanyards :)

Victorinox Swiss Army Knife scales 22

Some SAK scales made in the second part of 2017.
Toxic pattern and two tone anodized titanium scales for 84mm SAK
 This anodized set is for my personal EDC SAK - Victorinox Bantam
...and here is my new favourite dark finish on brass.
Special set of scales with logo of  Polish Fighter Squadron No. 303. I like how the orange peel finish is contrasting with the beadblasted engravings. I will for sure use this finish combination more often. Note that it was engraved without use of laser, just a CNC milling machine
