New sheath for a Roach Belly
#1
This past weekend, between the rains and my frozen fingers acting up, I was looking for something to do. While moving things around, I ran across a Cold Steel Roach Belly. I shelved it because I hate the stock sheath. So,

Grabbed some kydex and made a new one. While trying to figure out how to attach it, I remembered something I saw on a William Collins video. So I made a cross draw adapter from leather. Stained it, attached and love it now.  Have to show them as attachments as I closed my Photo Bucket account and haven't figured everything out on the new forum.

Thanks for looking

Bob

Good job! That Roach belly might be another knife to put on my to buy list.

The gear we leave behind and the challenges we encounter, 
Are methods we use to cleanse our spirits.
Of Survivalists and Bushcrafters, Primitive Technologists too, we are one.........

It is the wilderness within, we strive for first and always.
Not everyone can have a cabin in the mountains.
The thread that connects us, is fine like silk and strong as steel.
Together, the song of the wilderness is the song we sing!

Bushcrafting is "doing what you want to do." 
Survival is "doing what you have to do"
Primitive Technology is about all of the above........

Thanks, it's not hard to do and it does get addictive.

Looking good my friend
Hopefully the S won't HTF and I pray every day that it won't. It would not be fun.
