    Knife sheath

    Try going to a knife show in your area. There are usually knife makers that need someone to make their sheaths. John

    Any way to pull dye OUT of leather?

    I use an air brush with a .5mm needle which is not as finicky about the paint consistency as a gun with a smaller tip needle. I do not thin Pro Oil Dye. Make sure you run the dye through a filter to remove any large chunks in the dye bottle. That's all that's to it. John

    If you plan on doing this for a while try airbrushing the Fiebings oil dye. I've had nice results. John

    Round knife

    If the time comes that you need to sell a professional quality knife, should be able to recoup a good portion of what you paid for it and it will be a quick sale. John

    Ok, will do. Putting the belt loop on tonight and sewing lining. I do a little at a time after work so it will be a few days before complete.

    You are spot on with the advice you gave me, I ran the stitching wheel without the groove and I can see the marks just fine. If this sheath comes out ok I will post a picture of it. Thanks again, John

    Thanks for the advice, you did a nice job on your sheath, your edges are sure smooth. Do you think a lacing chisel would work better than the stitching wheel? I was thinking about purchasing one. Take care,John
