It is done and ready to ship!! First some sheath making. I got ahead of myself and forgot to take pictures early on. For these knives, I’m making what I call a presentation sheath, or display sheath. No belt carry.
First, I made a template and cut the parts out.
Next is glueing the welt and stamping the front. Then I mark for the retention stud and drill for it.
Here I am countersinking for the screw on the retention stud.
Ready to glue the fronts on.
Glued on and ready to clean the edges up.
Here the edges are sanded and the groove is cut for the stitching.
All sewed and finished! I use a small paint sprayer to dye the leather, which works really well. Then I use neatsfoot oil and axe wax to finish.
