Since we’re all sharing
Someday, I’ll nab a silver one but until then my brass will suffice!

I’ve had this Self Edge version for three years. It started out dipped in silver dust which wore off over time to expose the brass. Before/after pics.

Also, for anyone wondering - it DOES fit through IH 25oz denim belt loops! (I have the Corter Leather bottlehook and it couldn't, they were too thick  :D)

The one I had did (silver one above). It took a little finagling, but it fit for me.

Some of our brass BLB's being made and packed (yes, we place a large order).....The red things are the wax moulds and when built up like that are called trees.  The trees get surrounded by powder under a mixture of vacuum and pressure, then molten metal  is forced into the tree, melting the wax and forming the item....

The way Josh does this is next level sophisticated, that is why the quality is off the scale.  Dude even makes his own silver and gold alloys as he trusts no one else to do it to his exacting standards...
