Here's another idea I was able to try on a sheath. Started out thinking about doing a barracuda but it involved into some other species. Maybe a sardine.:D The fishy knife has a 52100 blade, sambar stag handle, with one tiny piece of wrought iron for the butt cap. From where the blade comes out of the handle its 5 1/2" and overall its just under 10". The little skinner has a 3 1/2" 1084 blade, deer antler handle, and wrought iron fittings. It is just under 8" overall.

OK Ray, How in the heck do you do that? You got my curiosity up now. That fish one is really cool.

Way too clever, I'm with Bruce 'how in the heck do you do that?'

Bruce, I'm about to go to bed but I'll give you an idea. Remember me saying all my new sheaths are two layers of leather. I first make the inside layer and add what ever I want to that and then cover with the outer layer. Here's a photo of a previous sheath before I put the outer layer of leather on.

The sheath on the bottom is the result from the previous photo. Now there was also a lot of hand work done.

Very interesting. How do you form the outer layer so pronounced and deep?

I end up having to tool it with my home made 16 penny tools. When I first put the outer layer on I work it with my hands till I start finding what is underneath. I'm still in the learning process but I learn more each time I make a sheath. The next one will be even more different. I'll post a picture of it tomorrow.
