    Evening, all;

    I have an aged, but fairly well-kept, Plumb Boy Scout hatchet, and I'd like to find a reasonably-priced cover for it. Could I trouble anyone for a recommendation?

    Make one. Very simple to do. Can be sewed of copper riveted where needed.
    Make a construction paper pattern, trace out on a 1/8 piece of leather scrap from Tandy and you are good! Tutorials on YouTube.

    Regards,

    What do you mean about “reasonably” priced?

    Ummm... I have a Gransfors Bruks small/mini hatchet, wilderness hatchet, outdoors axe, and the GB Ray Mears wilderness axe. I replaced each stock sheath/mask with something I like better. I still have the stock sheaths.

    If you think one of these would work, I would be happy to do $15. (I would have to pay at least a third of that for shipping.)

    I think that is fair. I try to be generous for forum members.

    I am sure it is holding up. It’s just crude and ugly.

    That it is, they honestly look nothing like the picture.I'll edit a picture into this post in a second so he can see that they aren't a dark leather like shown.Similar situation to the Ontario bolt knife, some people might want to work on the finish.

    It's a nice option though, it was the only sheath I honestly knew would fit.It can be scary buying molded sheaths when they aren't item specific.

    A world-class hatchet/axe. A hatchet/axe few will appreciate, because we are dickering about the sheath. There, I said it.
