Yarborough Knife Holder

I was recently asked by a QP if I would make a holder for his Yarborough. I was more than happy to. When asked as to what it would cost I quoted him the following, it would cost the actual postage fee and no more. The QP asked what I would charge for the holder and informed me that he would donate that amount to the Green Beret Foundation which I thought was a very generous thing to do on his part. I would be willing to make the same offer to the first 10 QP's who send me a private message requesting a holder and are willing to make a donation to the GBF and to cover the cost of postage to their address. I value my labor and materials at $30.00 per holder. You can have your choice of a darker finish or lighter finish.

Here’s the one I have. It’s held up by two very strong magnets that cling to the blade

Buckibill,

I saw that one online when I was looking into what was available. Something way beyond my simple capabilities, but I like it.

Your display looks really nice. The cold weather has me back in the shop making some Christmas gifts. These are whale banks but they identify as pigs. Merry Christmas to you and Happy New Year.
