Another sheath for a TLIM knife

It looks like I am more a sheathmaker than a knifemaker lately ;). I made another sheth for a TLIM knife - 'Obozowiec'. It was designed for a vertical and horizontal carry. This time it is 4mm vegatable- tanned leather sheath with kydex firerstarter holder. I wanted it to be all leather, but kydex is just a better material for a holders like this. There is also a shock cord to pull away a strap from the knife edge so it looks a little bit 'tactical'. I used Fiebing's Dark Brown Professional Oil and SNO SEAL for protection. All parts are detachable if needed, as I like.

Tactical Fish Bottle Opener PROTOTYPE

About three weeks ago I have finished a bottle opener I showed here. This is my first titanium tool made with use of CNC. It is hand finished, beadblasted and heat anodized. The material is 1.5 mm-thick Ti-6Al-4V titanium, so the opener is be very light and can be carry with a keys or on the neck as a pendant. I think, that I will make more openers like this do that one can be considered as a prototype :)
