    I finally got around to making a sheath for this little guy after a few months of it sitting naked in the shop. I used 10 oz with medium brown dye around the edges. Tandy Waxed Braided Cord Beige 11210-04. I used a dinner fork for a spacing guide. All she needs is a soak and a buff.

    That looks really good Dan. Great looking knives deserve a great looking sheath. Nice coloring.

    Couple of questions.

    Did you put a gusset in?

    what did you use for the holes?

    A little hard to tell but I think I am picking up a bit of leather "fuzz" o the edges. If so, have you ever tried to burnish the edges?

    Thanks Eric. I am not sure about a gusset. I put a 3/8" wide welt that runs along the edge where the front and backs come together and get stitched. I used a 1/16" drill bit and drilled the holes on the drill press. There probably is a little fuzz. I used some gum tragacanth and piece of wooden dowel. The focus was on the edge where the three pieces meet. I was going to hit it with the lighter and singe off any fuzzies.

    Maybe this is a better shot.

    I tried for a mottled effect and a sunburst thing too. For the mottling, I used a cotton ball and Medium Brown dye on the tanned leather and just sort of rolled and daubed it randomly.

    I can't stop staring at the knife, what did you use for the handle?
