PERRINS thank you in advance for your help
  2. thank you both for your words. In the wallets and pouch i have been experimenting finishing the leather in others ways then the neat and clean like and in past works. I was after a more rough / used look. JG

  4. Thank. In part te retation works because of te knife design, if the handle of the knife is flat is more dificult to make it work as good as in this case. Jg
  5. Thank you both for your kind words In fact the retain is only made by the leather. The layer os leather that was molded to the knife was putted in the woven to make it more stiff.
  6. After several weeks of downtime because of the baby, I'm back to work in leather. This order came from Sweden, a leather sheath for a Mora 2000. The client specifically asked for a sheath to use around his neck like the one i use, but requested that the support of firesteel was as secure as possible to avoid at all costs losing it. Hope you like it
  7. thank you all for your comments and suggestions. I am considering making the changes that Tree Reaper said. As soon as i get the hardware i will update my original post best regards to all JG
  8. In the last 2 days i have been occupied with the making of a Stitching pony that i was planning to do for some time now. This equipment will help me allot in the tedious process of stitching my leather work. <br class="Apple-interchange-newline">
  9. Thank you both for you comments. I am trying very hard to grow my craftsmanship some they i will get there JG
  10. I was asked by a client to make 3 pieces for him. 1. Sheath for a Mora clipper and firesteel (the one on the top right) I only have this picture because i forgot to take more Sheath for FK F1 + DC4 Pouch survival Hope you like it!
