Double sheath help

Not sure if anyone could help with this. I don't make my own leather sheaths due to tendon issues in my arm and so have a leather worker make them for me who is superb. But on the last double knife combo I sent him he kept hitting issues with the sheath as he doesn't normally do double sheaths. I think part of the issue was the two knives were different lengths and one was a curved 'tripe' knife.

So does any body have any detailed images of double sheaths of plans for a double sheath please which would likely get him up and running for the next set of knives I send him please?

From what he was saying he attempted the job 3 times but wasn't happy and if it wasn't 100% perfect he understandably wouldn't put his name to it.

Thanks P

I’ve never attempted one but there may be some advise or examples on one of the leather forums.

There is a South African knife maker that does double sheaths for knives that he makes as pairs, mostly as a bigger and smaller pair. You can go and look on his Instagram page to look at his take of the double sheath. https://instagram.com/a.s.strydom_knives?igshid=8d0k004073w7
Andries has been more than willing to share information and has helped me a lot.
If you are interested I can DM you his contact details so that you guys can communicate.
