I you do plan on actually wearing it than get a sheath that locks the knife into it and can't be cut through.(use a liner). I can just imagine falling down or getting tangled in something and having that blade popping out of the sheath the way it is. Good luck with your project.
Hey Sal,how ya doin?I've been making neck knives for about a yr.now,easy to make.Been making them from files and skill saw blades.Starting to work on a throwing knife.If you are into primitive Blk Powder and rendezvous,Dixons gun fair is this Fri thru Sun.All kinds of seminars and vendors,great fair.Griz

kool I'll try it.. I have a smokepole T/C Renegade .54cal sidelock and one of these days I'll get a flintlock, I also would like to have a muzzleloader shotgun too. I made a small bag out of a rabbit to carry some stuff when I Powder hunt.
I have a old antler set that broke so I used one side of the rack. I took a magnus II 2-blade (A.K.A. Nugnet blade) and hot melted it to the tine. first off I stuck the point into the bh and used a pencil to make it, to see how deep. Then I took a file and filed it down so I had about 1 3/4" to 2" in the BH. then heated it up (BH, hotmelt, and antler) and stuck then together. DONE...
I went out to the Mt.Bethel gun show Sunday,lots of Blk.Powder shotguns for sale,i was looking for a double flintlock all they had were percussion.Prices were right,from $150 up.Next Mt.Bethel show Oct 8.Lots and lots of blk.powder guns at Dixons.Griz
