Here are my TOTK's.

I love them and highly recommend them to anyone.
From left to right:  2 Strike-all Firestrikers, Bushpick, and 3 of the new Neck knives.  I love these neckers.  They are resting on a piece of veg tanned leather that I will be making a sheath out of for these very soon.

That bushpick is growing on me. I may have to order one of those guys.

I have had it for more than a few months.  I need to get myself in gear and get at it.  I will do it soon and post step by steps and pictures.
I'm thinking Kydex for at least 2 of the PSKs but maybe a leather neck sheath for 1.  I'm, also, going to handle one (with what I don't know yet) and see how it comes out.

I finally drew up a sheath pattern for the PSK so I will post it soon when I build the sheath.  I am not sure how to host .pdf files here yet. But I will post some scans of the sheath pattern. It is drawn on a 1/4" grid so all a person would need to do is enlarge the image until the grid lines = 1/4" then print it out and use the pattern.

I figured I could afford to do it with a Bush baby, and as it turned out it held up just fine. 

The bush baby "it can fend off a dog", as endorsed by youtube celebrity and axe-pert upthecreek.
Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.
