First ever Sheath: Horizontal behind the back for a Ka-Bar


Well-Known Member
Hello y'all: These pics are my first ever attempt at making a knife sheath. Horizontal behind the back for a Ka-Bar. Don't look too closely at the work, I see many flaws but for a first attempt, and learning much along the way, it came out fair. Lessons learned will be applied to the next one.
I decided after looking at these pics that I tried wayyyyyyy too many leather stampings, it looks cluttered. Also, the leather started out very light tan and the dye I used was much too dark. Lessons learned but I think the overall design will work well in the field.
