  1. The explanation is easier than you think.. my friend who commissioned the 2 knives, like me in the past, is an actor at 5 or 6 Renaissance Faires during the year, most of the time he's in pirate form, but him and his peers are always looking for some "rough around the corners" type of different garb and accessories.. I posted a completely new and final piece probably right before this one.. Hey, Garry Keown, thanks for chiming in on this, I do like to learn, and it takes folk like yourself to help with your honesty. Cheers
  2. Final updated sheath, I've only tried tooling a couple dog collars previously, and trying to shape/wet mold the blades as well was a bit of a challenge, but I am pleased with where this project has taken me. My friend, an actor in many Renaissance Faires, who commissioned this, is happy as well..I believe I see a few more of these in my near future..m I know I still have so much to learn, but I enjoy that part more than most..
  3. I totally agree on that, Garry. I became excited and cut those slots with so little leather purchase, and tried it on before doubling it up from the back, and one side stretched to almost breaking... There is almost everything in the leatherwork that is poorly executed and I've made the"it's just a prototype" excuse, but it was... I need to work on more consistent, patience and discipline in all things.. and billyO, there is an empty void where the right blade slides on top of the left.. that's where it makes this the second prototype I tried the first one with two individual mirrored sheathes
  4. I'm a novice knife maker and made this for a friend this week and could not for the life of me, find another similar type of sheath to learn from.. it sits well in the middle lower back, and hides under light jackets.. I was hoping for some more experienced honest critiques on design (not as much the leatherwork, was just a quick prototype) and thought y'all might know of a pic or two hidden somewhere you could share of one someone has made... I just can't believe I would be the first to have tried.. cheers
  5. Or is there a better forum section to post this type of topic?!?
