  1. For a good one there's Barry King and Ron's Tools. Both in USA.
  2. I'm guessing you mean skive? Sure you can skive veg tan. I do it all the time.
  3. Is the one on the right the front, and the other the back? With a saddle stitch, the front side is slanted from the 10 o:clock position to 4 o:clock. Your one on the left is opposite--8 to 2.
  4. I've heard of some folks using double sided tape to hold it down. So I've "heard".
  5. This is the pattern I use. The stitching spacing is at 3mm.
  6. Are you familiar with Mascon and his YouTube? I think what the OP is coyly saying, is that Mascon is not all that he believes he is. He is quite the showman and a large portion of his followers are a younger Reddit crowd new to leather work and easily impressed. If one didn't know better, they may think that he invented the word bump jig, it's design and their use. I suggest you watch his hustle and you may be scratching your head less over the OP's post and scratching more over the Mascon's sale's pitch.

    Yeah, you really do have a chip on your shoulder. If you looked at who I was responding to you would realize that I was defending what you have on your sheath. You may want to reread it with a more open mind.

    You may not know but "NH" is the abbreviation for the state of New Hampshire. Live Free or Die is the state's motto. The original quote is "Live free or die: Death is not the worst of evils." That's why New England is part of America rather than England. It's estimated that there are over 3000 moose in New Hampshire. I guess it means something to the guy that got struck?
  10. Buckleguy.com offers strap cutting. I think it's 25 bucks. I suppose you need to buy their leather?

    Sunflowers are the national flower of Ukraine. Ukrainian civilians give the Russian invaders sunflower seeds to put in their pockets. When the Russian soldiers are dead and rotting they become fertilizer for the seeds.

    It's looks very Ukrainian.
  14. Take a container and put in a box of baking soda with the leather. Maybe cover it loosely?
  15. I don't know but Rocky mountain Leather charges $2.50 per sq foot and District Leather Supply charges a buck a minute.
