    Last ones..

    No, I always put in a 2 or 3 mm thick, 10 to 12 mm wide welt on the outside edge. It protects the stitching from the blade and the blade from the rivets. A bit hard to see in the pics..... Roger

  9. Cheers, all my leather is veg tanned. Roger
  10. Thanks, I'm making some sheaths for a bloke who makes these fancy handmade knives and I was a bit concerned about the possible effect on the blades. Roger
  11. What do you use inside a knife sheath, other than a lining, to protect the knife blade from leather...rust wise, etc?....wax, dubbin ? Roger

    Bowie sheath

    MW, yes, once I removed the brass base from the plastic case I knocked the primer out, ground away some of the brass to make it thinner and used a 6mm eyelet to attach to the leather and then pushed a used large rifle primer back into the hole. Roger

    Ammo pouch

    Made an ammo pouch for a mate of mine, for either 22's or air rifle slugs. First of this type of pouch I have made so there was a few mistakes....should have used a magnetic catch instead of the Sam Brown stud, wet molded the ends which was good but found that my fingernails scratched the soft leather when I was sewing..a few other things I would do differently but thats for the next one... Roger
  18. I have a question that's a bit like hotdogs and buns...why is it that stitching punches are spaced in a metric size and stitching wheels are measured in spaces per inch ?? I cannot find a stitching wheel that matches any stitching punch.....or is it just me ?? Roger

    Elastic

    Thanks to all for your help. Frodo, I would agree with you but the customer specified elastic....I'm using girth elastic so it should last fairly well, and at the very least I'll learn something new. Roger
