  16. I didn't see anyone answer your question, so here goes... once your holster or sheath is cut out, we your leather well. Wrap the gun or knife in saran wrap....it's needs to stay dry!! wrap the leather around the item where it's going to be set. put it in a vacuum sealer bag..it's a specially designed bag that let's the air out when put in the sealer. Ziplocs don't work... most vacuum sealer bags have a bumpy side and a smooth side, make sure which side you want is on the outside of the holster. put the bag in the sealer and start it...it will vacuum all the air out and compress the leather around the item. leave it about 12-24 hours to mold well..... open the bag and let it dry a bit before you take the gun out to do the finishing. Good luck
