Was very popular with the Inquisition, I believe.

Seriously, what the hell is that?

It's a old style clamp that's used to hold a knife sheath together as you stitch it. They seem to only be avalabule from this one shop in England, but they won't ship to the US :knife::bashhead: think they are still holding a grudge about the war...the whole revolution thing??
Any way I thought a knife maker may use something like this so I posted it it see.

Maybe a UK member could receive it and then ship it to you.

It looks like an incredibly easy and simple thing to make out of sheet steel. Maybe one of our Knife making friends could make it out of some scrap for less hassle.

I bet it's really some medieval torture device and Colin just doesn't want to tell us the truth. Nipple stretcher?

Hmmm. Well, while I'm working on your new 52100 splitter blade, I might as well try to make one of those things. I'll be sure to try it out on my fiance' first :)

Ha ha. No, she probably wouldn't. I had printed out the image and had it on my desk. She was like, WTFIT? I said it was a little something I'm going to make for our honeymoon, and she thought I might find it a little uncomfortable where she planned to shove it. So, that's out. I can definitely say it is not a nipple clamp/stretcher - mystery solved.

Travel tools. I'm like a old lady these days with my sowing, I don't sow much at home but more so when I'm out. Like when waiting in the doctors office, or DMV.

Hey Colin. Any luck finding any of these yet? If I were to make you a couple, I need to know how big it is. For scale sake, would you say the gap is 1/4" at the narrowest part of the clamp?

I have never seen one but they are used for belt makers. If you were going to make them I'd help you design them with sheath makers in mind. That way you would have a unique tool desirable to a whole group of people of witch you are already in the same circle as... Whole new market.

Ah, well... I don't know about a "new market," but I can make a few for ya. Let me get your splitter blade done first. BTW, would you mind mailing the original back to me so that I can make the holes perfect? I seem to remember one of them was slightly out of line of the others. -M

Got it coming your way, good time too as I won't be needing it for a good month or two
