I want to try my hand at sheath making as I often find myself less then satisfactory with factory sheaths (doesn't help that I'm a southpaw either). I also don't want to spend a ton in the process. Trying to keep this fairly low budget.
Anyways, what are the essential items I need to make make a quality knife sheath?
I have an idea but am looking for recommendation as to what you guys consider essential. Needles, thread, some type of punch(es), contact cement, etc.? Are those Speedy Stitcher's worth a crap if you're working through pre-punched holes?
Thanks in advance guys!
EDIT: Forgot to mention, I'm heavily rooted in the belief of 'function over form'
