    Default New Sheath for an Old Hickory.

    My latest work, a new home for a lonely little paring knife. The blade is a bit thin, But that only rules out chopping at things, it can still be a handy tool for every other purpose.

    The sheath is made from 6 oz. horse hide (Horse Butt leather to be honest.), And I tried the 'Mexican basket-weave' lacing for the first time with black cowhide, I didn't have a way to get over the tip of the sheath so I left it and laced up the other side. I'm surprisingly really happy with this one. I almost didn't want to put it on Etsy like planned, but I'm thinking i'll order in some 6" butchers to make scabbards for. Thanks for looking!

    Great work! I love the Mexican basket weave, but it just takes so much longer than rivets. LOL. How is the leather finished?

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. GrowlingBear, I used two coats of Eco-flo shene, I like their stuff most of the time.

    That's cool...I laced a couple of gun holsters in Mexican weave years ago. You have inspired me to have a go at it again.

    I am also on the hunt for some Old Hickory knives. I have seen so many nice examples (like yours) on this forum that I really would like to have a few.

    Thanks for sharing
