Really makes me appreciate the work and skill that goes into making a sheath. Thanks
Thanks Randy. The information in this thread was all stuff I learned from two other people (certainly nothing I invented) and then made some changes of my own. Since then one of those individuals has changed how he does things due to some things I've come up with...and he's been doing this for over 40 years! So we are never too old or too young to learn.
That's great, thanks for sharing
epic tutorial thread bump
What kind of leather do u use for the insert? Veg tanned or buckskin? I can't tell, I would like to try this but I only have buck skin! Lol
He is using veg tan for the insert i believe
Oh okay thank you!
Ok, the first thing I'll say is that right up until I was almost finished, I was disappointed with how it was looking. But, now that it's finished, I am more than pleased with my first attempt at one of these. I want to give s huge THANK YOU to @badger claw for the tutorial!
I recently acquired an incredible antler-handled Wilder Forge knife, and I threw together a quick sheath for it from some 8-9 oz scraps I had. It was a shorter pouch than I would have liked, but those were the biggest scrap pieces I had on hand, and I just needed something to protect the edge (and me).
However, since day 1, I knew that I really wanted it to have a more primitive looking sheath.
So, I followed the instructions generously provided by @badger claw, and here is the result...
Obviously, it's not the same style of sheath, but the instructions were extremely helpful nonetheless.
What do you think? Good upgrade?
