Default It'll do!

I made this knife a while ago and i've just got round to making it a sheath.I'm not entirely happy with this one as the stitching's a bit wonky. First attempt at this style of sheath and in general i like it.It's just for my own personal use anyway! Made using very limited tools,hammer,dart, fork,bent terminal screwdriver, craft knife, couple of needles and sandpaper.
Brass stud and makers stamp made by myself.





All comments, good or bad graciously recieved.

Darren.

Those are your beginners attempts, they look great, and i like the touch of your own stamp on the front, a footprint is a very bushcrafty thing, im going to use a leaf when i start making mine, not sure which leaf to use though, anyway make sure to post your next attempt on here, im sure it will look just as good

Thanks guys, very much appreciated. Just thought i'd better point out that this isn't my first sheath, just my first of this style. Also the makers mark isn't a footprint. I can see why it was seen this way though. It's actually my initials - DC. It 's just my poor attempt at individuality!

This should clear things up!

lol, not a poor attempt at all mate, you know what it really is,that makes it more personal than if it was a footprint, now that you pointed it out though, its easy to see, now how am i going to make PS(my initials) look like a leaf? hmmm

Cheers guys!

I did have every intention to have this as a user Warren, but now i'm not so sure mate! The knife has grown on me lately and i do have numerous knives that i don't mind beating the crap out of on my outdoor excursions. This one is seriously at risk of being another cupboard ornament! It's future really depends on how the next batch turn out i guess!!

I don't mind making them and not using them if i'm honest Warren. Everyone's got a different reason for making knives. I'm in a fortunate position of being able to make them for my own personal gratification.....For fun really! If there was any pressure or deadlines hanging over my head then i just wouldn't enjoy it. The only pressure really is trying to continuously improve my own skills....I guess that's where the fun is for me!
I've got one sitting here from the last batch that didn't turn out as well as i'd hoped so i'm going to destruction test it! I'll do a thread!!
