Interesting little knife. What is the customer planning on using it for?

Do you just have a glue line rather than stitching as a continuation of the stitchline behind what I presume is the hanger loop?

I like it, the shape is dead on for a small seax.  If you're going for historical accuracy you need to work on your sheaths, though I'm sure it's functional.  If you're interested there are a lot of images here:
