    Default Second attempt at a scandi sheath.

    Amidst the chaos around here as of late, I needed a little relaxing project to work on, so here's my second attempt at a scandi style sheath.. It was done for a birch bark handled puukko, made by the young/talented bladesmith, Luke Shearer out of Texas..

    This time I used much thinner leather than the first attempt, Not sure what weight ?? It's fairly thin..

    I wetormed it, dyed it in a barrage of leftover dye's, stiched it with white waxed nylon thread and then coated it in Bees wax..With a leather twisted belt loop..









    this one came out kind if blurry.. The knife is a real beauty.. Scary sharp too..



    So far I am really enjoy making these kind of sheaths.. I like how both have come out so far..

    Any questions and or comments welcomed..


    Cheers.. Mike

    Looks awesome. Great job.
    Just because you can... doesn't always mean you should.

    I'm going to the woods. Don't come lookin' for me less you see a flare.

    Looks real good! I think you got the hang of it. There are many styles of these things. Yours is close to how I made em. There are also ones that use a solid inner liner of sorts, such as wood or bone, then wrapped in leather.

    One thing to try is the belt loop attachment, it typically looks like this, and works real well. Worth a shot if you're so inclined.

    Nice work Mike

    I adapted this method from looking at factory sewn sheaths. I don't cut extra material for the hanger tab...instead I wet mold it in after sewing the seam. I cut slits and insert a piece of scrap leather to form the slot. If I'm doing a ring and strap type hanger...I'll punch round holes and insert a section of chopstick.

    Right on guys. Thanks for the kind words.

    Spork- I had thought about doing it that way. I may still on my next try. There are quite a few different methods.
