Bowie Sheath

Recommended Posts

Howdy y'all.

I finally got around to finishing the sheath for this knife . (It's amazing what a rapidly approaching show will do for your incentive). It still needs some wax cleanup and polishing, but the construction and dying is all done. It is fully lined with kip.

I've been experimenting with sheath making and decided to try making a sheath that could be worn either hanging straight down from the belt loop or high on the hip in a cross draw fashion.

Here is the back to show how the belt loop is made.

And the two ways of wearing it.

That is a great design for the two carry options Joshua and of course the execution is very pleasing.
