  1. 2 more sheaths

    Two more...one is "almost just like" the first two, the last is because the guy wanted two, and I thought I'd try out the new airbrush. Hey, he should have been more specific. The airbrushed one is actually my trophy wife's fave. Once again, the "club colors" of the VFW Warriors club are black and yellow... you guessed, right? The pic shows the nasty-a$$ed sheaths they knives came with, and my "new and improved" sheaths. Keeping in mind that the blades didn't really deserve any more than the aforementioned N-A sheaths shown.
  2. Got a nice set of Cuda brand pliers, diagonal cutters, and braid cutter as a gift from my wife for fishing. Decided to make a nice sheath for the set, and I got way too into the project. First time with this type of project, had a great time and didn't encounter many obstacles during the build. I prefer a belt clip to the more traditional loop style. I also used a tri-weave stamp along with a few other basic stamps to decorate. All stainless hardware. Let me know what you think. Thanks
  3. Second sheath. It looks a lot like the first sheath, because the first sheath showed up at the Harley riders VFW club. Next request for one was immediate. That's a good thing, right? Second request was for one "just like the first one". Not as much fun for me, it was like I'd been there before. It was a different knife though, so that was nice. First pic is the first sheath, second pic is today's completion.
  4. I made a sheath for an old Japanese sushi knife I rediscovered buried in my kitchen drawer. I spent 3 hours honing the blade to remove nicks it had from banging around the drawer unprotected. I gave the knife to my son and decided it needed a sheath to protect the blade and keep his fingers safe when grabbing the knife from the drawer. I used two layers of 4-5 oz veg tan and used the same leather for the welts. Put a small piece of pigskin inside to cover the snap and keep it from rubbing against the blade. i'm still learning how to use my Cowboy CB4500 and I have to get better keeping my stitches an even distance around the edges. I used the roller edge guide for the first time and it worked well, but I had to hold the sheath up a bit to keep the piece level due to the uneven backside caused by the strap. I sealed the dye with resolene then applied two coats of a homemade mix consisting of beeswax, carnuba, neetsfoot oil, and lanolin. Heated the leather with a hairdryer to melt the wax in and buffed it out. I appreciate any feedback!
  5. Made another one this time longer and scout carry. This one is a retirement gift that come with a shinny nickle.( not pictured )
  6. Well, I did a molded one for my folder, quite a while ago, but this is the first fixed blade type. A co-worker won a knife at a Harley ride a couple of weeks ago and he wasn't impressed with the plastic, (maybe kydex...) abomination that came with it. Their VFW Harley riders club is the "Warriors", and I knew he was retired from the USAF, so I worked up something with that theme. The wings logo was interesting, I didn't have a stamp that would do it right, so I used a couple of small straight blade screwdrivers. Their colors are black and yellow, and I didn't have the means to do the lettering in yellow, so I went with yellow Tiger thread in .8mm.
  7. Tooling A Knife Sheath?

    Hello I'm new to tooling, but have been a knife/sheath maker since 1966. When I make a sheath, I know I need to " back " the leather before casing and tooling, Here's my dilema, in order to make my stitch groove I need to have a good sanded edge to follow. Without putting the sheath together first, I can't get that perfect edge? If I put it togerther first I can't tool it because there's no solid backing behind the blade area? I can't tool the front first, or the edges of the layers may not line up? Has anyone else run into this " catch 22 " situation? At the very least, this is a hard problem to explain, but if anyone "gets it"??? I'd appreciate any help you can offer? If I'm not giving enough information, please let me know. Regards: Stoney327 owner/operator Pappy Dave's Knives Berwick, Pa. " In business since 1966 "
  8. Just finished this custom Leatherman Surge belt sheath. Molded leather, with a side pen holder. Also, I built in a small "pocket" behind the main compartment to store the extra removable saw blase and file. This is for my son, who needs it at work and the factory LM sheath just didnt cut the mustard for him. I think he liked it....he called it "legit"!
  9. So I've finally taken some pictures of my projects. I've been a busy beaver My favorite by far is the embossed alligator wallet. I made one for myself as a tester and for some reason the embossed gator feels so amazing in the hand! Thanks for checking it out. There are several things that I know I could do better on each, but if you see something you would like to critique feel free
  10. Hi everyone. This is my first post. I wanted to thank the community for all I read here about vinegar black. I am madly in love with using mordant instead of dye. I was able to turn out an impulse project in no time with my month old brew. It's a holster for my fabric scissors. I made the mistake of using the live edge of the hide for the rim (I liked the soft curve of it), but it's too floppy and soft for my liking, so I know next time to either line the rim or be sure to use a tougher inner part of the hide for that edge. It was instantly gratifying and deeply satisfying. I'm thankful for this forum and hope I can post and read more when I can get my head out of my work. Take care everyone! ~gemfox
  11. I'm a big knife fan, one of my favorite patterns is the Case Peanut. I currently have 4 of them. This is my second molded item...a pocket case for this small pocket knife..... This is a synthetic purple model....and the slip pays homage to that by being dyed purple inside. Dark green stitching. Pretty pleased with it. Started a work-carry molded shesth with my younger son today for his Leatherman tool. That'll be my most complex item yet.
  12. I've been messing with leather for a year or so as I have time. This is maybe my best piece. I still get my stiching holes crooked on the blind side. Anyone have ideas how to not do that? Any criticism is welcome.
  13. I made one with a simple snap and then tried one with a Concho/Snap combo. I didn't know what to do so I created a leather "Washer" to fill the long shank space. I also made the mistake of positioning the Strap across the back instead of the front.
  14. Recently made this for a family member. No patterns available, so had to come up with this on my own. There's some flaws, but over all I'm ok with it for a first try. Open to comments. Thanks
  15. Here is a little something I was working on recently... a sheath for my survival knife
  16. Hi everyone! i ve been working wth leather and been a member of this forum for a while now but i never really shared any of my projects until now. i have recently designed a mini fat bowie for myself named "The Monster Cleaver" and got it done through ABS J.S. Doug Campbell. After getting the knife done i have decided to make a unique and one of a kind sheath and way to carry it, so i ve started my designing process and came with what i thought was a unique design. Anyways i wanted to share the finish product with you and get your opinions and any questions you might have about the sheath or the knife. Thanks for checking out my work and topic, i hope you like what your see, thanks again and enjoy.
  17. First sheath

    Well after posting a couple of crappy wallets I made it took the advice of a few people and made this little knife sheaths. I still have a long way to go but I can tell a difference with saddle stitching and better leather.
  18. G'day all, I wanted to share my first attempt at a knife sheath with you all. It was also my first commission job, so that was pretty cool! The knife was one that the clients brother had owned, so it had some sentimental value. I hope you like it! Please provide any feedback you can too, both the good and the bad!
  19. Lately I've been trying to work on my stitching. Considering I just received a new English Paring knife, I figured I would make a small little sheath for it. I should have designed it differently but it was a good chance to practice my stitching. Thank you to Nigel Armitage (@Dangerous Beans) for his videos on saddle stitching! Slowly but surely, I'm getting better!
  20. Made my first bushcraft style sheath for my self made knife. I have made couple skandinavian style sheaths before. I did shoot video about making it. https://youtu.be/IqS2WJbOYbo
  21. Where do you get blue guns

    I was wondering where everyone got their blue guns from? Ive looked around and seen them for around $50. Is that a fair price?
  22. Here's my latest little project-- this makes it pretty nice to carry that half pound brick of a multitool. Plus, I can't resist making a sheath or holster for every knife and gun I own (probably like many of you)! Cheers! Tanner
  23. Feedback Please

    I have rustic forged chopper I made ( no pics right now) and wanted to do something freehand to kinda match. I know this isn't pretty, just looking for tips on where I can improve next time, and maybe make some alterations before I stain. I also understand tooling is difficult at this stage, but I kinda want to add a moon and clouds upper left but don't know how. Thanks Chris
