    Sheath for a St jude auction finished

    I Finished a sheath for a annual auction a bunch of traditional archer's have every year. I thought I'd post it here as I'm pretty happy with it turned out. I did a few things that I haven't tried before and I think it helped. I've been lining sheaths with veg tanned kangaroo but split and...

    Folder sheath

    I have a buddy that got a gift from his girlfriend today that's pretty special. She had Bruce Bump build a super folder and I got to make the sheath. It was fun to try a new style I've never done and sure helped to know what my buddy preferred for a sheath. Hope the pictures come thru all...

    dress sheaths for some Randall's

    My cousin asked me to make some "dress" sheaths for his small collection of Randall's and I did the best I know how to do. It was great to handle these blades and get the story of when and how he got them. He said at the time it was a must that special forces carry a Randall. He ordered his...

    This years St Jude sheath

    Time again for my highest paying leatherwork of the year. Don't get a dime but sure pays big time in good feelings. This year I was asked to be part of a group effort on a knife & sheath. Not being much of a bladesmith I got the nod for the leatherwork. This is for a annual auction that a...

    Scroll cutting doodle

    Awhile back someone was interested in learning to scroll cut. I mentioned that I had a peice of my uncles work who influenced the way I scroll cut. Someday I might get half as good. I held my old HTS swivel knife in the picture to show what his favorite knife & blade looked like. This is...

    Horsemans sheath.

    I just finished a blade and simple sheath to go with a 1918 vintage 94 winchester carbine. I tried for a knife and sheath I thought would fit that time in this country. Big enough to split some kindling but small enough to peel a elk. The sheath I thought needed to be a high carry to clear the...

    Home grown leather tools.

    I have lots of homemade tools I've made for my leather work. Just finished a edger that works real nice and thought I'd share. I started a couple but the one is a specialty edger for saddle seats so focus on the one suitable for sheaths. These are just scrap peices of steel left over from...

    Folder sheath

    I'm pretty new to building blades, this is # 4 &5. Can't get what I used to buy for lock backs so I'm forced to try to build them. The whole reason for my love of the lockback started with a cowboy asking for a type of sheath. It needed to hold his favorite style of blade in a crossdraw on his...

    St Jude donation sheath

    Every year I donate a custom sheath on a trad archery website to benifit the kids at St Jude childrens hospital. The guys have a lot of fun and bid things up way higher than they should so I try to pull out all the stops and do the best I can for them. I have a couple sheaths that were on the...

    Hello to a Great Site

    I'm gonna have to force myself to drink plenty of fluids to combat all the drooling. I'm a rank greenhorn building blades so I'm gonna spend a lot of time looking at all the talent here and hope a small amount rubs off. My main interest is hunting blades and being able to build sharp well made...
