Some new leather work for an old piece

Recommended Posts

The blade is from several years ago.  I ran into Sage Grouse Leather at the Salt Lake show and decided that he was the guy to make a scabbard for it.  Not only is his work first class, but his photography is top of the line.

12" blade, forged 5160
27" OL

Curly Maple and stabilized Walnut

Many thanks to Geoff @5elementsforge. This maple-hafted Hog Splitter provided the funnest build I’ve ever done.

The blade is 12”. Overall length 27”. The sheath includes a strap adjustable from 45”-60” for shoulder-carry or wall-hanging. Matching fringed barbarian bracelets.

Thanks for looking.

"The worst day smithing is better than the best day working for someone else."


I said that.


If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly.

So, just for the record: the fact that it does work still should not be taken as definitive proof that you are not crazy.

Isa 54:16 Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.Lu 22:36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. Mr 8:36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
