  1. Made my first bushcraft style sheath for my self made knife. I have made couple skandinavian style sheaths before. I did shoot video about making it. https://youtu.be/IqS2WJbOYbo
  2. I was wondering where everyone got their blue guns from? Ive looked around and seen them for around $50. Is that a fair price?
  3. Here's my latest little project-- this makes it pretty nice to carry that half pound brick of a multitool. Plus, I can't resist making a sheath or holster for every knife and gun I own (probably like many of you)! Cheers! Tanner
  4. I have rustic forged chopper I made ( no pics right now) and wanted to do something freehand to kinda match. I know this isn't pretty, just looking for tips on where I can improve next time, and maybe make some alterations before I stain. I also understand tooling is difficult at this stage, but I kinda want to add a moon and clouds upper left but don't know how. Thanks Chris
  5. Hello all, I am new to this community, I was given my grandfather's tools for working leather a few years ago. I played and practiced with all the tools. I was asked if I could make a pair of knife sheaths for my mechanic and his father in-law. I said sure. He had no patterns in mind so I went with what he hunted. Deer and Duck. His father in-law did not hunt duck so I stuck with a buck. The buck did not come out the way I wanted it to.. all but the Letters and leaves are traced and free hand done.
  6. Just a little project for myself to use up some cheap-o 6/7 oz veg tan I've had lying around; #12 rivets & burrs, .8 mm tiger thread, solid brass ligne 24 snaps from Rome Fastener. This was my first project using copper rivets and burrs, and there was definitely a little learning curve on that. I'm pretty pleased with how it came out and next time I use copper the results should be better. It takes a bit to get the angle of the setter right so you don't mar the leather around the burr. It also takes a little practice to trim the post to a good length. Too long and you have way too much metal to peen over, too short and there's not enough of a mushroom to hold securely. I like quick projects like this to learn a new approach, no stress on how it turns out. But I think my hatchet looks kinda classy now!
  7. Here is my first attempt at a fixed-blade sheath, for my father-in-law's hunting knife. The sharp point had poked through his original Buck sheath, so I thought one with a full welt ought to hold up better. I don't normally drill my stitching holes, but needed to in this case as it was about 5/8" thick. Any tips on keeping the back side holes straight when drilling through this much leather? There is a reason I didn't include a photo of the back! Thanks, Tanner
  8. FINALLY got this present finished, but I messed it up so much that I told my guy that I'll make him a better one based off the same pattern and color. (turns out he wants a stag and owl on it anyway) I probably went about making this thing ass-backwards, but in the end it turned out alright. In any case, it holds the knife tight and looks a hell of a lot more harmonious with it than the cheapo nylon sheath that came with it. I underestimated how close I had made the knotwork to the edge, and just how much tooling it would expand the leather so I ended up stitching over the very tip of the knotwork at the bottom. I'm not so pleased with how the tooling itself came out, either, but I'm still progressing with it.
  9. I'm not having good luck using the search engine, and I'm sure the answer I want is in the Forum somewhere. I make mostly knife sheaths, and I like a sewn on belt loop. Keeps metal away from the blade. The knifemaker just sold something to a guy who has a disability that prevents him wearing a belt. He's asked for a sheath with a metal clip. Since I don't like them, I've never done one. Is the answer to line the sheath? Which would mean two thinner layers of leather? And is there a way to attach them firmly to the sheath? The ones we have here look like the slide through a slot. What I'm thinking of is to cut two pieces of thinner leather than I'd usually use for a sheath,one for the lining; put the clip through the outside layer only; then contact cement both pieces together and go on stitching up the sides. The knife is a punch dagger, which will need a strap and Sam Brown stud (I don't like them either -- metal inside the sheath where it touches the knife blade). So I'd put that through the outer leather and secure it too, before lining. If I'm messing up here, I'd like to know. I've seen someone with a belt clip that isn't metal and seems to be attached to the sheah with a non-metal rivet. I've asked him about what he's using, but I bet you guys are faster. Thanks in advance, and happy New Year!
  10. I've been browsing the forum (and am fairly new to the forum) for techniques that people like to use in finishing the inside (raw leather) of their sheaths. I have tried the paraffin/beeswax concoction in dipping a sheath to seal it all over(haven't tried applying only to the inner w/ a dauber) - but didn't like the shiny finish I've tried trag gum - but have ended up with some hairy spots that refuse to go away & Lately I've been using Ballistol, as recommended by Rowe's Leather, whom has made some nice sheaths for myself and my father in the past - but it turns my saddle tan to a dark brown from inside out! I want to get a smooth finish on these sheaths, and can't decide whether I will go un-dyed or raw, pending my next attempt at finishing the inside. What do you guys use? And I apologize if this thread already exists - If so, please link me! Look forward to hearing what you guys have to say!
  11. Finished up a knife sheath today. This is for a beautiful custom knife that my Niece's husband had made by Jonathan of DogHouse Forge, from an old farrier's rasp. The handle of the knife is wood from a black cherry tree off their farm. The sheath is made from Herman Oaks veg tan leather and dyed with oxblood and mahogany colored dye. It can be worn directly on a belt or as a dangler. It holds a firestarter on the side and the pouch holds a small sharpening stone.
  12. I really like friction/tension hold sheaths and I am working on one right now (a horizontal draw) when a question popped in my head: can I dye the leather first (I like oil dyes) while the pieces are apart, then wet form the sheath around the knife after that? For the knife sheath I'm working on now I wet formed it first then dyed it but I was just curious if I could go the other way around. A second question issue came up with this project, it is a small knife with a finger guard. I have the sheath going up like a quarter of the handle and as I was wet forming the sheath the leather dried and the opening shrank a little. I could pull it out just fine but when I would go to put it back in I was mashing the leather. I cut a hole along the top a little to make it so I could put the knife back in without mashing the leather. The question is: when I am wet forming a sheath how do I accommodate the finger guard but still maintain the tension/friction necessary to hold in the blade? Third question: how large do I need to make the welt? The welt I have on this one is about 1/4 inch but the blade moves around a lot in the sheath. Do I need to cut the welt in the shape of the blade? Thank you!
  13. Here is a picture of the leather I am going to use to try my hand at wet forming a knife sheath. The question I have though is about the welt. I tried to show the welt I have already cut but then I'm not sure about the length. Will this welt be sufficient or do I need to take the welt all the way up to the top of the sheath. My understanding of a welt is to protect the stitches from the blade, so will this length be sufficient? Thanks!
  14. I'm pretty new to leather-working. So far I've made a holster for a mini-maglight, a couple of wrist bands for my daughters, and one other sheath. This is my latest attempt; a sheath for my BK-2. I thought it came out pretty well. Working on making a new camp knife now. If it comes out okay I plan to do a video of both the making of the knife and the making of a new sheath for it on my blog, selfsufficientpath.com. Hope you like it:
  15. First time posting in this forum. Any constructive criticism is welcomed. Thanks!
  16. A friend I've made knife sheaths for over the last couple of years just dropped off an axe. I've never done one of these before. I'm looking on line. I'm using 9-10 ounce vegtan, and I know that for this, I'm going to need a strap and snap. I can do those but I make knife sheaths that don't need them, cuz they're such a pain when you need to get your knife off or back on your belt. If you know something that might help me make a better axe cover, please tell. I really like the guy who brought it and I want him to have the best possible.
  17. I decided it would be a good idea to make my daughter a belt for christmas. This is the final product, any advice on how to bring out the tooling better would be greatly appreciated. after the belt I caught the bug and purchased some leather. my next projects were sheaths for some knives and an axe, and a holster. I will post pictures of the other projects soon. Please give any advice on how to make my work look more finished.
  18. So well, I guess there is no need for two threads, so I´ll reduce it to one I had a work mate some time ago I came along with really nice and who teached me a lot for my daily job. So as we are both craftsmen and therefore like well (hand)made stuff I decided to make him a belt which turned out to be the best I made yet. For those of you who mention the different colour of the edge all along and the edge where the keeper sits (might be hard to see on the pictures... didn´t do a nice job on the pciture stuff this time): I started with the buckle using edge kote. But after that I visited my father who owns one of my belts and recognized, that the edge of hos belt - which I finished with some edge kote, too - was just fuzzy all along.... so I cried a little for help here, got some fingers pointed again on the thread "how to finish edges" and did it (nearly) as descriebed there... finally I got a nice (even nicer!) edge the with edge kote which hopefully should hold up much longer, as the only substance sitting on top is a really thin coat of Tan Kote finished with some parraffin. Thanks for that already guys! Acutally I never saw him since I gave it to him, but he was full of joy, so I assume the hours put into this piece were worth it. The belt itself is some 3,5mm belt croupon lined with some 0,8mm ... neck (I guess... ordered that seperately), hand dyed as always and handstitched with 8 SPI all around. The bucke is made of solid brass and the width is just about 38mm. As this is the second lined belt I made, I tried out some things like skiving the loop where the buckle sits down to the lining plus tapering the tip of the belt for a better sliding into the belt keeper. work worked just fine. The second piece is a sheath for a... "fancy" knife of a customer. He just wanted a simple sheath but made a lot more sturdier than his last one where the knife is hold by friction at least a little as is came out sometime before... The sheath is dyed with a light brown. After that I applied one coat of oil, let it dry and applied some heavy coat of my leatherbalm. The plan was to fit the handle colour of the knife which turned out quite good. I guess those are the moments where it´s good to know how the individual hide darkens when you use your "stuff (the balm) on it!! So always do a sample guys.... really! I guess If I didn´t know and wanted to be it light brown I´d have stuck in this head->table->head->table motion.... XD So here you see the difference between the old one the ne sheath As the blade got a little curve near the tip, it even cut a little hole into the old sheat... that was made poor and a little tight, so everytime the customer pushed the knif back into the sheath he unwillingly forced the tip into the leather.... poor little thing ^^
  19. Just finished the sheath for my Armageddon Skinner and I thought that I would show it off. The handle is made of Macassar Ebony and the blade is made from 440c steel. Hardened to Rc57-58. Here are some photos hope you like them Vern
  20. So this is my first sheath this year, ment as a present for a good friend of mine. He got this old boatsmen knife (he teaches shooting for the german armed forces) and wanted me to make him a new sheath as the old one was starting to fall apart. This is what I came up with: And here you can see the old sheath (on the right) compared to the new one (on the left): The sheath is "butt-sewed" around a plastic inlay, I took from the old one. The knife fits in snugly and won´t come out without pulling it. Hope you like it
  21. Hei! Here are some leather goods from Estonia. I've done this for about a month and fell in love with the craft. I used some traditional baltic patterns and some of my own ideas. Critique would be wery welcome!
  22. My first knife sheath made from some off cuts I had kicking about. Should stop the blade blunting in my toolbox I hope. Any thoughts would be appreciated as I am still very new to this game !
  23. And here´s just a new sheath I made some time ago. Sadly I was a little late, so I didn´t get the chance to make some photos. Luckily, the new owner send me some I actually can use It is lined with loden and formed over a wooden model. The design was a special whish of the customer (including the knot-thing on the upper end). Hope you like it.
  24. Been a while since I posted anything...let me know what's what, folks! First, a two-tone Avenger style holster for a 3 1/2" Ruger Bisley stainless steel Blackhawk 44mag (Lipsey Exclusive)...Saddle Tan with Basket Weave stamping over Dark Brown and White Thread...with a hammer thong and 2" belt slots. A special thanks to Clay Miller for the new stamp used on this holster...his ever-expanding line of tooling far exceeds my meager skills. Next, is a field holster for a Ruger Blackhawk 41mag..Saddle Tan with White Thread...simple oil finish...very rustic. Dual belt loop design allows for strong side or cross draw carry. Finally, a simple hand-sewn knife sheath for a Sharp (Japan) skinning/hunting knife...Saddle tan with White Thread. As always, I appreciate the input!
