    Working on a project for a custom knife maker for a "bear jaw" handled Damascus forged knife. He wants a really distressed, unrefined look sheath to compliment the look of the knife.
    Decided to make a test sheath first using my Triple X Sable neck knife.
    Using a piece of veg tan leather for the scrap bin, a bucket of warm water, 3/4" gravel pile, 3 lb paver stone, medium brown gel antique and artificial sinew I got this.
    Small loop can be used for a neck cord or carabiner.
    For scale OAL of the knife is 6".
    On to the real thing now...

    Love the stitching on that. And, i have to say, i've never heard of a tool list include "3/4" gravel pile" before : )

    Don't forget the 3 lb paver stone too:) Loving the stitching too. Takes 24" on artificial sinew for every 1" of stitching.
