B. Norris Posted September 26, 2011 Share Posted September 26, 2011 (edited) HOW TO MAKE A LEATHER POUCH SHEATH The leather that I will be using is vegetable tanned cowhide in a 7 to 8 oz. weight. My reasons for using this leather are: that it is readily available, it can be tooled, carved and stamped, it can be shaped while damp, it can be dyed almost any color, and it is least likely of all the types of leather to contain chemicals that will react with the knife. MATERIALS: Leather – Vegetable Tanned, in a 7-8 oz. weight Glue –PVA(Polyvinyl Acetate, Elmer's') Candle Thread – Waxed linen Dye Dye Applicators Eco-Flow – Gloss, Satin Saran Wrap Latex Gloves TOOLS: Knife Gouge (Adjustable V Gauge) Foam Pieces or Folded Towels or a Box of Sand Coarse Sandpaper Skiving Knife Awls Leather Stamps and a Mallet Harness Needles Pliers Adjustable Grooving Tool Stitching Wheel Adjustable Line Tool Clamps Edited September 26, 2011 by B.
