My new Knife from Grand Torino and sheath

Recommended Posts

Just thought I would post up a couple pics of my new knife I got and the sheath I made for it.

The knife of course was made by Grand Torino, book matched Ironwood scales with copper liners and pins.

I felt the knife deserved a special sheath that would hopefully match it looks, so I got to designing, and this is what I came up with...

The sheath is made as more of a high ride.

I used a 1 Oz copper Gadsden coin to compliment the copper in the handle along with some distressed tan ostrich leg inlay, then dyed it black to set it all off.

I think it does the knife justice.

Thank you  Grand Torino for the beautiful knife, I hope the sheath does it justice.

Clearly craftsmen of the highest order!  Looks like nice select coco bolo for the wood if I'm not mistaken and more than likely a Rockwell you cant get on the store bought butter knives!

The wood is actually book matched Ironwood the pictures just don't do it justice.

GT's work keeps impressing me the more I see it, I own and have owned a lot of knives and for the money GT makes a better knife.
