Two KABAR inspired blades.....


Recommended Posts

Both made from 5/32" thick 1084 carbon steel which is the same basic thickness as the Kabar. They are the same size with a 7" blade and 12" OAL, have leather stacked handles with guard and pommel. Both come with the combo buffalo hide/kydex sheath shown  and have a black oxide treatment. They are $150 each shipped.

1. Basic Kabar shape....fuller was milled by TGO forums own xtriggerman. He did an excellent job by the way.

Those look great.  Was this your first time doing stacked leather? How was that?

I replaced/restored a couple of stacked leather handles on actual Kabar knives in the past few years so between that and you tube I had a clue. It's not difficult but very time consuming and it's a mess. Sanding/shaping leather is terrible compared to most any wood or even G10. The S#@* goes everywhere, clogs files and sandpaper.You constantly have to clean out the files. Tip....you'd better have a workshop/place not inside your clean house if you plan on doing this...your missus will have a fit if you do it inside. :bellylaf:

      Selling my lightly used Magpul Hunter stock in O.D. Green. This will fit a Ruger American short action. Comes with everything seen including the magazine and LOP spacers. It has very little wear. I had plans to build a nice long range / tactical gun but never got around to it.

      Been looking around locally for a .22lr Kadet Kit for my CZ-75b Omega, with no success. Would really like the kit for cheap trigger and target practice at the range.
       
      If you have one or know where I could find one, shoot me a quote or send those links! 
       
       
      UPDATE: Found one, actually multiple of them! Optics Planet has them right now for about $469 after tax, and there's only 7 left at the time of writing this, so get them while they're around!
