    Glen, I love your knife! Willow leaf blade Canadian belt knives are my favorite. I have a cheap cold steel one that has a nylon composite simi- dangle sheath. Although this Canadian belt knife doesn't compare with yours, it' an amazing value, and takes and holds a good edge. there so cheap I bought an extra and don't worry about loosing it.

      I explain what I decided to do in order to enhance retention and water protection in this later thread.

        I really like carbon steel knives in leather sheaths. But not for canoeing. Too much water around and they get wet and rust. I carry a Swedish stainless steel fishing knife with a plastic handle and plastic sheath on my lifejacket. I use it for everything.

        One good maker is Mora of Sweden. I get them from commercial fishing supply houses in Seattle.
