I received yesterday a parcel of leather sweeties from our very own Janksleather and they are so completely top notch its left me with a feeling to share ....(my thoughts not the sheaths)
A little bit of background if you don't know .... Ekranoplan (Jan) is the better half Of Paul Mason of mason Knives and her leather work is what accompanies any new work that Paul sends out ......this alone should indicate the level of quality these sheaths are ,if nothing else i say does !
Starting with the standard style slips the leather (premium grade) is all hand dyed with beautiful colours and completely hand stitched to perfection ....there a compact design that really wraps around your favourite knife firmly and securely ,this is great as it keeps the bulk down unlike most of the mass produced pocket slips out there with machine done stitching (I simply can't use as they won't fit in my shirt pocket) also this allows for the leather to brake in but not get sloppy in fit .... Jans versions actually take very little extra space than just the knife on its own but at the same time doing a great job of protecting your precious baby,I really can't fault them in anyway
The other is the new pocket clip sheath that Jan has come out with ,That is frankly ruddy brilliant!!....The quality again is exceptional (truly) and the design perfect !!.....this little wonder will allow you to carry your favourite slip joint all day attached to your pocket, fixed in one position instead of the usual rolling round in bottom of the trouser or jacket pocket getting beaten up by keys and coins ...and is always to hand like a more modern folding knife with integral clip
Iv tried taking some pictures to show how little it prints and how cool it looks In the pocket .... please forgive my poor attempts at one handed photography
I urge anybody looking for some just epic leather for there favourite knife to drop Jan a line and get on with it!! ....You and your knife deserve it
If you can't tell I'm very happy
