Finally found some time to make a sheath for my LW round knife.
Hot Tip: I like using Tandy’s black All-In-One for antiquing some things. It’s a terrible dye but a great antique! Brush it on and when dry it kind of wipes off here and there when I apply Resolene to seal. It gives it a weathered look that I was going for here.
 

I also added a PDF of the pattern I made for this morning f you’d like to make yourself one. The strap I made a little longer than needed so placement can be how you like it to be. Enjoy!

That’s my custom Leather Wranglers SK-V with pyrographed artwork by Britt Nantz. It has my initials on one side and Celtic hounds on the other.

Yes, I drew the pattern in illustrator after tracing the blade. The PDF I included up there contains vector lines if you’d like to lase it too.

I find it easy to use, but I’ve also been using it for close to 25 years. There are a lot of tutorials out there you should check out. It’s great software.

Illustrator does have a learning curve but as explained lots of free youtube videos. But now, Adobe in it's greed no longer allows you to buy the software as a one and done. It's subscription based so it can get $$.
