  1. In our kitchen there is a serated knife for slicing sourdough loaves - another of my hobbies is sourdough baking. The knife is around 30 years old, and still as sharp as when it was bought. I've always wanted to make a sheath for it, but never got round to it. Until this week. Here's the sheath. ("Broodmes" is Afrikaans for bread knife) Here's the back of the sheath with the knife unsheaved (and placed strategically to hide some wonky stitching...) The leather is 3.5 mm vegtan, from a bunch of scrap I bought from a local shop. The sheath is about 11.5 mm thick, as it has a welt of the same scrap leather. Stitching was done by hand, 1mm brown braided thread I discovered at a shoe repair supply store. It was an absolute challenge to keep the stitch line at the back relatively straight.. Stamping on the front also not as straight as it should be, and the "s" has a horrible bounce shadow... Learnt a lot making it...
  2. Custom Knife sheath for customer.

    Custom knife sheath I made out of 8-9 ounce veg tan. My own custom design tooled onto the sheath. The customer wanted a leg tie because of the knife size. Hand sewn with ritza 1.0mm.
  3. My latest knife sheath

    Haven't posted for awhile and thought I'd share this. I did this sheath for a custom knife maker that had a customer wanting a leather sheath with tooling.
  4. Pancake sheath for folding knife

    I have been watching a good bit of YouTube lately and came across Don Gonzales' channel and got inspired by his pancake sheath video. I've been wanting to get my tooling in shape and the sheathes aren't huge and still allow you to get in some skill while making a functional thing still. I don't have a stockman style knife so I winged it and made up my own pattern and tried to put some scrolly stuff on the sheath. I dyed the background Fiebings Dark Brown (Pro), the flat parts Mahogany (spirit), and hit the vines with some Eco-flo saddle tan gel antique. I left the backside natural. Finished with Fiebings Leather Sheen. My stitching is coming along nicely and the edges came out super nice. The leather is 8/9 oz Craftman Oak from Tandy. I really need to grab a bag punch-cutting those slots sucks and is risky! This is not my first attempt at tooling but it is my first attempt at anything close to floral. I accidentally put this in "Show Off" but please critique as you want. Mods, feel free to move this to Critique My Work if needed.
  5. Some time ago I forged a small blade. Then I put in the drawer where it spent a lot of time. Since I need a present for friend o' mine, I pulled the blade out its hideout, assembled the knife and also made neck sheath for it. Hope, she will like it.
  6. I finally broke down and got myself a high quality tool, a Barry King Edger. The problem with nice tools is that I really want to keep it protected when not in use. This one in particular likes to roll well, so I need something I can stash it in right away when I am done using it. I am guessing the end product will be similar to a sheath, maybe with a clamshell like opening so I can snap it shut for storage. I have not been able to find any threads on the topic, so I just wanted to ask and see if anyone had any samples or solutions they like for protecting a single tool like an edger. Thank you, Andy
  7. I made this a few months ago but haven't been very active on this forum (something I look to remedy). I had Rich Greenwood, a local bladesmith, custom make me a karambit for my gigantic hands. I then made the sheath for it, going for a friction fit. I feel like the tooling is my personal best (I know there isn't much tooling) but I don't do a lot of tooling so my growth is slow. I am a big guy with ham-sammich hands so the handle/knife is big. To many it may be a weird looking knife but I love it and Rich did an excellent job meeting my specs. While the tooling came out well, I ran into an issue when putting the knife back in the sheath. The shape/design and thickness made it very difficult to get a smooth re-sheathing. I still have to fiddle with it when trying to return it, but it draws fairly smooth. I think that I will make another sheath for it someday, perhaps using a combination of wood and leather. I know this is the show off section and people feel a little uncomfortable adding critiques, but I have improved so much because of your input. If you see something you would like to add your two cents on feel free! I appreciate it!
  8. Here is a sheath I made this past weekend. This is my 5th project I have made. I used a scrap leather piece that I got in a remnant bag. It holds my Buck 110
  9. Here's a sheath I made for my knife. The patterns you see on the knife were done all by hand. If you want to see how I did it, click here. You can also check out my channel where I do all kinds of different leatherworking if you're interested. Let me know what you think!
  10. I've made some wallets and a bunch of headphone wraps by looking at what was out there and figuring out what I wanted. With the axe sheath, I have seen a lot of knife sheaths that are wet formed and thought I would give it a shot, I have wet formed catch alls in the past and they turned out well. Any and all pointers appreciated.
  11. Haven't been there for a long time. Let me show you my last work. Benchmade Knives Snody Design 201 Activator custom vertical sheath.
  12. Well, after getting some practice, including gluing up a proper thickness piece, I stitched a knife sheath. It went PRETTY well. I went REALLY slowly. I didn't use the edge guide, as I'm waiting on a part. I only messed up on the stitch line once, at the acute angle at the tip of the sheath. If I hadn't used a stitch groover it wouldn't show as much. I'm thinking I'll darken the visible line somehow. I'll be cutting a slot in the needle foot so I can see the line better. I imagine with practice I'll get a better at following the line. It appears that I'll have to do some more grinding/sanding on some parts, like the feed dog or edges of the plate. On the back you can see some sharp cuts from those parts. I didn't mind so much hand stitching the smaller, thinner projects, but keeping the back of the piece straight was always a challenge for me. Also, the thickness of holsters and welted sheaths was not as much fun as I'd like. This monster of a machine didn't break a sweat, though! The edges aren't finished yet. Just did some quick burnishing so far.
  13. I can't believe it! Once more, I've gone and wasted a precious hunk of leather on a stupid, stupid...did I mention stupid?, mistake. There is something about knife sheaths, that makes me cut at least one piece of leather with the wrong side out. Now, this time, the sheath DID have the grain side on the opposite side on the back piece, from what I usually do. Still, I KNEW THAT! Still screwed it up. I really need to only make symmetrical sheaths. All the other sheaths I've made have had the belt loop fold away from the front, and rivet on the back of the "back" piece. (I screwed those up, too). This one, has the back piece fold towards the front piece, and fit in between the back piece and the front piece. Yeah, that's it! It's not my fault! The Ka-Bar people are just bas-akwards! Oh, thank goodness. I feel so much better. Never mind. Jeff
  14. I had left this question as part of another thread, but wanted a bit more general audience for a possible answer. I have a USMC Ka-bar leather sheath that has a rivet in an unusual place. My brother who has had the knife/sheath for a LONG time doesn't remember the rivet at all. I don't see any possible reason to put a rivet there, maybe someone has some info on this?
  15. Hello, all! My older brother gave me a nice Damascus steel knife for Christmas and I decided to make a sheath that it would look good in. haha! Just kidding... that's the cheap sheath it came with. Here's the real thing... Thanks for looking! -Ryan
  16. Haven't posted for awhile, so thought I'd throw these up here. I was asked to do a couple knife sheaths for someone making custom knifes, so thought I'd give it a try. I was happy with the way they turned out, hopefully the customer is as well.
  17. Hi, my brother works for a wilderness NGO and needed a new sheath for hie leatherman. the color and the wolf was choosen, since it is part of their logo. The wolf is more bad than good, but my first carving experience. this is my 5th project. Enjoy! I first cut off too much of the upper part, therefor I had to add an extra layer :-)
  18. This is a sheath I enjoy making and it has proven to be efficient design that stays out of the way of a side arm or a backpack. Comments are welcome. Hoping each of you are doing well. Scott
  19. Whipped out this handy little sheath for my Bahco Laplander folding saw. Leather is 5oz. Wickett & Craig Buck Brown Harness for the pouch, and 12oz. Buck Brown Harness for the belt loop. Saddle stitched and brass easy set rivets for added strength. Cheers, -Matt
  20. This is a custom case for a leatherman tool that I did recently. It's 5 oz. Hermann Oak that I wet molded on a wooden last that I made. It' has a hand tooled floral/engraving style design and initial. I used Fiebing's Medium Brown dye and Angelus Matte Finish. I also used a hidden magnetic closure to show off the tooling. It's lined with calfskin and hand stitched.
  21. Hi, i am completly new to working with leater, so I might post my very first projects - I have done a lot of mistakes and please critisiue whereever you can! 1) The Mans Purse .. veg leather with a homemade vintage coloring (attempt) and firstwetforming ever (bottom) the seam fell appart and I had to renew everything. I learned that "carving" the Letters isn't so easy in already dyed leather :-) 2) old Kukuri Knife .... the wooden part was covered with sheep leather and the loop was veg leather where i glued the sheep leather as outer lining ... to match the color... At least the wetforming with Alc/shampoo/water worked.. What I learned: contact glue is a bit** .. once the parts touched the stick together like hell... so the whole wet forming didgn't wor anymore : -) Hope you like them, and esp. with the knife I will add the progress pics
  22. Scimitar Scabbard

    Well...just finished a scabbard for a scimitar. 5oz veg with a simple geometric pattern, no frills dealio for a friend. I was excited to get some pictures up and show off my first sword sheath. Delivered it...he was happy with it, and all was well. Got home and realized I didn't take any pics of the finished product...duh. Maybe next time! Anyways, below is the only pic I took during the project.
  23. It started as a damascus blade blank from a local knife show (1095 & 15n20), 5" blade: Then I added leather scales (horse butt?): Then wrapped in alligator and fastened the scales, and started the sheath with 5.5oz leather: And N52 magnets: I designed the sheath so the knife could fit in facing either direction: Wrapped in alligator: And stitched together, attatch strap, and done: The strap is attached with a chicago screw and it swivels, so I can wear it IWB or OWB. Yes, it took a very long time, but if I did it again it would be much quicker next time, now that I have some clue what I'm doing. This was my first knife handle, and first sheath.
  24. I can finally post these now that the contest is open. A special commission to create custom knife sheaths for TripleX Knives in Nova Scotia (www.xxxknives.com) for a global Instagram contest they are running. If you have an Instagram account to can view the contest details here until October 5th: https://is.gd/k8oE6I Large knife has a 9" blade. 30 deg cross draw with a removal dangler option. Small knife is a 3.5" blade with a dangler. Had free reign on these so took the opportunity to work on my carving and coloring techniques.
