Looks great! What color is the brown one, walnut? Looks close to the color I use on my sheaths! 

You are light years ahead of where I was at six months. I got the bug in the 70"s and still enjoy it !

Haha ,the initial color was mohogany ,then English Bridle,then I used a one off dye I got from makersleathersupply..idk the name I just know its a very very light tan

 

I then used 800grit sand paper to scuff everything up and focused on the edges and corners to give it a wear look.Came out great.Sealed it with acrylic res.

 

Now I just have to sell these lol.

 

I purchased a swivel knife.I want to practice tooling then try giving that an aged look.

 

I was surprised how well this hide from tandy felt.My last tandy hide was garbage but its within my price range at the moment.

 

If anyone uses instagram.I am more active there.@Mauldinforge
