Make friends with the meat manager at your local grocery or a butcher. They can put an edge on one.

I don't know where you are but a friend has a nice sharpening setup. He does some on the side for a couple of local restaurants. Pretty cheap too.

He's in Toccoa.

ETA: He can get a good knife hair splitting sharp.

If there is a list of stuff Mike won't make then at the top of that list is knife sheaths followed only by handgun holsters with lights.

I guess Mike also will not make handcuff holsters either.  Or at least he will not respond to emails about having them made.

In fairness, he did apparently severely cut his hand over the weekend...

There is a guy named Erik Edges that has a mobile service around atlanta. I was told years ago that you could leave them at Harrys Farmers market in alpharetta and he would come by weekly and sharpen them. Alternatively, for a fee, he could come to your house for a min of like 20 knives

He'll give you a sour face if you ask for a BuckMark mag carrier - however, anything he does make is da bomb.

Yeah, I sent like two or three emails between 4 and 5 months ago.

I am sorry to hear about his hand and I hope he has a speedy recovery.

as an alternative, you could go the blade show this weekend.  tons of guys will sharpen will you wait.  i am sure you could probably find a sheath, too.

+1 for Erik Edges.  You can drop them off at any Cook's Warehouse location for him to sharpen as well.

You want lights on your holster?  Like sparkly or blinking?

i have something odd ball with a tlr light i cant get a holster for.

If you having knife problems,  I feel bad for you son.
I got 99 problems.. . .
Link Posted: 6/2/2010 3:31:28 AM EDT
and I replied that I do not make hand cuff holders


I hate making knife sheaths followed only by handgun holsters with lights.

One off weird stuff just takes up a lot of time that I don't have
Until I get my new assistant holster maker up to speed I don't have much free time.
Like last week I taught 3 pistol classes, shipped almost 100 holsters and I have a full time job.

A friend of mine told me that there is a guy that frequents the Griffing gun store? I don't know if there's just one or what, but anyway you might call down there and check. My friend has used him and swears by him although I have no experience with him.
