When you can't find exactly what you're looking for, make it yourself. This knife was conceived from an antique file, scraps of ebony, and aluminum tang pins. The hardened steel in a lot of antique files is truly a ridiculously hard steel and hopefully holds an edge. Now it also has a kydex sheath and belt loop.
As part of a national fundraiser, to help animals affected by the hurricane in Texas, we built a custom presentation case for a ukulele that was auctioned on eBay. The instrument belonged to Grace VanderWaal the 2016 winner of America's Got Talent. It was personally owned and used by Grace in recording her latest album “Just the Beginning” and signed by her as well. The ukulele, with our case and a letter of authenticity generated over $17,110 for Austin Pets Alive! a non-profit animal shelter in TX. It was great to be a part of this endeavor. The case is made from solid Sapele, stained, lacquered and lined with velvet. The lid uses a series of rare earth magnets to stay in place, but if on display, there is no hardware for a clean look.
