  1. Romey, darling! Months ago you told me a lot of nonsense (a lecture about rules in this forum) because I had posted a big photo in my thread. Now I tell you the same nonsense: you have posted 4 big photos and that is out of consideration with this forum and his members. Don´t worry, I finish here my remarks with you for ever and ever, and please don't read or reply my comments never again. I don't like your sheath, is very wide and rough, and the knife is simple. Have a good day!
  2. These pics are from this link. The author or the owner of the pics is www.denismura.com http://www.knifenetwork.com/forum/showthread.php?t=44932
  3. A very easy tutorial with pics for beginners in this link http://www.knifenetwork.com/forum/showthread.php?t=44932
  4. Thanks Clay! If you wish look at another interesting french leatherworks: http://www.e-monsite.com/polanddeqo/album.html http://www.cuirartis.com/index.php?numlien=4 http://www.loutan.net/yves/albums/index.php?/category/9 http://www.guylevesque.com/fr/index.asp http://www.auchatperche.com/carnaval.html http://www.brunoduffort.fr/dispo-cuir.htm
  5. Thanks, very nice!!! Do you know where are the saddles from, country or saddlemaker? Wood and leather?
  6. The typography for an old printing press, hundreds of letters engraved in plumb or steel. You can read a back issue of Leathercrafters&Saddlers Journal showing this technique, I remember a bible cover writed with this method. Any years ago there was a toy's plastic printing works in the market.
  7. I make my own tools: mallets and head maul with nylon 3" (they aren't the best fot stamping), hole punch, some strap end punch, groovers, adjustable U and V gauge, edge bevelers, an adjustable creaser, an awl, a lacing-stitching pony, wood folders and wood slicking sticks, and my knives for cutting leather... my tools are "made at home", simple but working, only with steel, wood or brass, a Dremel, grinder, sandpaper and file. Now I'm making a strap cutter with my design and a new handle swivel knife with a lathe for metal tube. If you have a minimum of knowledge and some tools of carpentry, woodturner, plumber or blacksmith, everybody can do it. I assist sometimes to courses of do-it-youself, I look for the tutorials in a web site and I have read some book about.
  8. Al Stohlman's "How to Make Holsters", "Frontier Holsters" and "Custon Knife Sheaths" with Chuck Burrows (DVD), red or blue guns for holster molding, holster patterns or your own design, and a little workmanship and imagination, no more! http://www.wrtcleather.com/tr-books/books-1.shtml http://www.leatherworker.net/forum/index.p...587&hl=blue http://www.leatherworker.net/forum/index.p...4&hl=vacuum http://www.leatherworker.net/forum/index.p...6&hl=vacuum http://www.leatherworker.net/forum/index.p...ic=2186&hl=

  10. I don't understand. I work in Europe and I'm not a certified member of an indian tribe. Carving leather with a native american design from a book is an offense? If I sell in the USA or Europe my articles with indian desings stumped is illegal? If I use the word "Reproduction" is not an offense?
  11. I bought these books in www.amazon.com Traditional Indian Bead and Leather Crafts by Monte Smith, Michele Van Sickle Indian Designs (Native American) by David Villasenor North American Indian Motifs CD-ROM and Book (Dover Electronic Clip Art Series) Southwest Indian Designs CD-ROM and Book (Dover Pictorial Archives) North American Indian Motifs: 391 Different Permission-Free Designs Printed One Side (Clip Art Series) by Maggie Kate
  12. Fine work! Nature has wonderful designs.
