Finished this little leather project
« on: March 29, 2023, 01:50:05 PM »



I finished this scabbard yesterday for a good friend of mine. Knife sheaths and scabbards are always a challenge for me because of the leathers and methods I prefer to use. This one was no exception. It has a vegetable tanned cowhide liner with giraffe hide on the outside. The green bling on the front is ostrich leg skin and the trim around the edges is deer hide. I sewed the whole thing up by hand using approximately 10 miles of artificial sinew. What's sad is I probably have more money in the leather than he paid for the machete!

It DO look better than the sheath I bought for my machete!  Of course mine goes in places that the one you made probably will never be near....

Nice work!  He ought to be happy with it, even if it's too nice for beating around in the pucker brush.
