  1. Re the welt - Probably, it would stop the blade from cutting your lacing. I also keep away from rivets in areas where the blade is likely to touch so it doesn't blunt. Happy leathering :-)
  2. Interesting blade , what sort of knife is that? I like the simple design, is the leather moulded at the handle end? You coulD work on your stitching. What sort of awl are you using and what sort of stitch. Check out some of dangerous beanz video tutorials on stitching they are awesome !
  3. Awesome !
  4. It looks okay dude. From the photos it looks as tho the pouch is much bigger than the blade, was there a reason for that? Would you consider wet moulding the pouch part and sewing it on in one piece? it would stick out less and you could do it with a single row of stitching and no cuts. Also I would try and make the top and bottom loops out of the back of the sheath and fold it over and stitch thru if you see what I mean. To tidy up the rear and make it smooth so nothing rubs. Did you bevel the edges some of the still look quite square. This would help the slicking / waxing. Or edge kote in a contrasting colour like black maybe. Just my opinion hope it helps. Happy leathering !
  5. Has anybody got plans for an ark?

  8. My first knife sheath made from some off cuts I had kicking about. Should stop the blade blunting in my toolbox I hope. Any thoughts would be appreciated as I am still very new to this game !

  14. Hmmm never thought of it like that.... Perhaps some stainless steel chaps with suede tassels ?
