    Puukko Sheaths

    Just finished a collaboration on these handforged puukkos. My friend, Will of Stout Craftworks, made the knives, I made the sheaths. Olive and walnut handles with African Blackwood spacers and copper caps. Wet formed leather around wooden block forms and hand stitched.
  2. Thank you! Do you mean the initials on the back tab? Yes, I had a letter and number set made in that font years ago.

    Dragon eye

    That looks amazing! Nice paint work.
  4. Hey thanks for the kind words. I’m glad you enjoyed my work!
  5. Thanks a lot! Full disclosure: I just used my iPhone 7+ and a little processing in Photoshop. Thank you! The color is a combination of leather dyes brushed on and some very fine point Sharpies. There’s three different greens in the tree. The helm is diluted black dye, the mantle has diluted green dye as well as the grass.
  6. Thank you! I had a brass stamp set made in that font. It’s called Uncial Antiqua. Thanks! I have about 15 hours in the tooling. Probably another 15 to make the bag.
  7. Thank you all! I’ve got another crest in the works now and I can’t wait for you to see it. I love doing these types of things. Sculpting the mantle is a lot of fun.
  8. Thanks! Thank you! Thanks! Thanks! Not airbrushed, I use a sponge antiquing method.
  9. Another custom Aidan satchel heading out today. All hand dyed full grain veg tan, hand tooled Callahan crest, inner pockets for a tablet and other essentials, sized to fit a 15” laptop. I’m having a hard time letting this one go.
  10. Thank you! Thanks! Yeah a liner adds a nice touch.
  11. I’ve been wanting to make a clutch style wallet for a while and finally found time to draw up a pattern. I used a 4/5 veg tan all around, Tandy dyes. I’ve got a couple of tweaks to make as far as sizing and I’ll be adding a wrist strap, but I think it’s a winner.
