Default Leather

Hi guys, im having a bit of trouble commiting my most my bank account funds to buying a piece of leather, alot more expensive than when i first started looking into making my own sheath, so is there anyone in the lowesoft to norwich area that dabbles with this so i can look at a piece of leather suitable for tooling before i end up buying a hide and getting the wrong stuff.

Thankyou

have you tried ebay. you can normally buy a sheath sized piece on there for less than £20 or so.

Hi - Whilst I'm not in the Norwich area, I've always got plenty of leather in stock.
If you get stuck let me know, I'm sure I could part with a piece big enough for a single sheath.......for a few shekels
