Little cross draw sheath I made for myself! The knife was a gift from my wife and custom made by a friend. I believe he buys the Damascus blades "pre-made" but the handle is all him. The inlay is our brand.

For the sheath I used 8 oz HO. It has a full welt around the knife which has been skived from full thickness to nothing at the outer edge. The finish is NF oil, followed by Aussie Wax and a day in the sun then topped off with a little glycerin saddle soap. 

I've only had it done for a few days but so far the design seems solid.

All the best, Josh

That is nice. Thanks for showing the blade as well. 

Well done.

Looks good. Is that antler in the centre handle section? Whatever it is it's nicely fitted to the wood. And what's with the stitches that cross from one row to the other? I assume there's a reason for it I just haven't seen that done before.

Thanks Biker!

Dikman,

Thank you! The handle is bone, and the knife maker did do a very nice job! As for my stitching, that was me avoiding stopping and starting more than I wanted to. Start on the inside row, go around until you cross 3 or 4 stitches, go sideways to the outside row and go around it until you cross over it 3 or 4 stitches. Then you have 2 rows of stitching with 1 start and 1 stop point. No real reason besides me being lazy :)

Have a great day folks! 

Josh
