Default Re-posted due to recent site outage, buck 110 shealth.

I have recently got vey interested in the craft of leather work, it being an integral part of making knives. I did try to post this earlier but had problems with the site outage upsets.

This is what I made to replace the naff nylon ish sheath that came with the Buck 110 I bought from Walmart the last time I was in the states.





All hand linished, veg tan and wet formed. I really do like the wet forming technique.

The leather is 3.5 mm thick.
Due to its thickness it holds the knife very solidly and needs a good pulling to get it out.
