    Default Custom leather sheath for Condor Bushlore

    Hey everyone.

    I went ahead and purchased a Condor Bushlore a few weeks back, knowing well aware that most people that purchase use them as a "project knife". With my ever changing gear set up, I thought it would be good for me to try my take on a knife and make it my own.
    The leather sheath that is provided with the knife, in all honestly isn't that bad. I have just taken up leather craft in the previous month though, and as of late been fairly partial to the SCOUT style sheaths, so I thought I would have a go at making my first ever sheath and create a new home for my project blade.

    After drawing out the original pattern for the shape I want, I go ahead and cut the pattern out. I'm using 8oz Veg Tan Cow Shoulder.

    Time to wet form and shape the leather to the knife. I let dry for 48 hours.

    After beveling the edges of top part of the sheath, I then dye a dark brown. Let dry for another 24 hours.

    After all sewn up, and straps attached. The finished project is now ready.

    Here it is on its first outing yesterday. I created it to work with Molle so it fits snug to my pack.

    I am by no means a expert when it comes to creating sheaths, or working on leather by that means, but is something I am dedicated to learning this craft. I am however very happy of the outcome of my first ever sheath. On to the next one

    Thanks for viewing!

    I thought I recognized that sheath style. His videos are great so are Nigel's I learned a lot about leatherworking from their videos.
