I don't see where Mike (Pappy) ever said he had rivets "added"...He just said: "I had rivets on my brown button sheath". Just sayin', Capt. Chris

gonna address a couple of points Larry mentions. First I want to reiterate, RMK was not and is not involved in sheath fabrication in any fashion. The only thing the shop did was set the keeper snap. Providing a choice of stag used in knife fabrica

I am not an expert on the sheaths, but Papís story is interesting, and it reflects how things were sometimes done back in the day. I remember going into the shop when Pete was behind the counter, and talking to him about a Model 4 with stag. He wen

It appears to be an HKL sheath, not a Johnson. That being said, the rivets have been there a long time it seems, and are period, so it is difficult to say 100%. It is most probably an owner modification. The Randall shop set keeper snaps, they didn
