    Did these a while back. I don't know much about the maker (Dale Duby) that did these obsidian knives but they were nothing short of amazing. Hoping to do some more work for this customer in august. I was amazed at how sharp these things are!

    All three sheaths had the same basic design...deer rawhide over leather with decorative horizontal bands.

    These first two had blades just under 4 and 5 inches. The sheath on the left was accented with wolf fur and the one on the right wild boar.

    Customer requested multiple carry options so this setup worked out and was very low profile.

    The third one was a monster....blade was over 7". Band on this sheath was a random piece i had...unknown predator.
