Very first leather sheath

4 posts in this topic

It's an ugly little thing. But for my very first I'm proud I could pull it off. I learned a lot, especially about getting a design down in mind first before cutting it out. My next sheath will have the belt loop coming up behind the handle, I was limited on leather so I had to make do. I also need to practice my stamping before I use such a busy design again.

Congrats Brian, Nice tooling. Are you going to dye this at all or leave it natural and let it age/stain with use? 

Is that blade a skinner?

Yes that's a skinner I designed. As for the sheath, it's not really something I plan on using again. This was just some practice to get my feet wet lol. So I won't be finishing it or anything.
