Super clean. You do awesome work
Set a rivet?
Should have read before i typed. The matching holes came out awesome!
First time for one of these...
Ok... Where does everyone source their leather for sheath Making? @mtngoat @Strigidae @Beard Man @SEMO
Springfield Leather, best.
I have a tandy local, so that's where I get mine
Sebenza 21 horizontal carry LH leather sheath.
Ok what trickery did you use to get both sides of the flap covered?
The sheath I made for Sebenza was just from two pieces: the upper shell and lower base.
To cover rough side of the flap with a smooth leather "face" I made it thinner and glued smooth "face" strap over the flap.
Thats top notch high class work sir!!!!!
Thank you for your kind words!
I really appreciate it!
These photos do it no justice. But to make the PR4 with TKC scales fit the stock sheath you need to widen the stitched side about 1/4 - 3/8 in: had to use some scrap pieces and then I added more today but no photos as I stabbed the awl needle through the side of my middle finger but here is a in progress
You can see the additional leather I had to add.
You can see the partial stitching and the Chicago screw I added for durability. You can see on the Blade section the stitching I had to remove so today I repaired the removed stitching and added additional up to the screw. The goal for tommrow is to finish from the screw upwards. It won’t be pretty but it should be extremely functional and durable
That deer hoof is awesome. Very unique.
